A random sample of 2266 women aged 50 to 69 years was used to investigate factors that predict attendance at a free Australian mammographic screening program.
The most important predictor was receipt of a personal invitation letter.
A letter that included an appointment time increased attendance 132-fold initially and decreased to 20 times baseline after 14 days.
A letter that did not include an appointment time increased attendance 12-fold, and a second letter to nonattenders increased attendance approximately 13-fold.
