  1. The natural history of prostatism : the effects of non-response bias.

    Article - En anglais


    In epidemiological studies, non-response may raise the question of generalizability to the target population.

    Most investigations have not been able to access data that could provide information about the potential impact of non-response bias.


    A 55% response rate was realized at baseline for a prospective cohort investigation of the natural history of benign prostatic hyperplasia in Olmsted County, Minnesota, during 1989-1991 (the Olmsted County Study of Urinary Symptoms and Health Status Among Men).

    This prompted a preliminary study of potential non-response bias among full participants, partial participants and complete non-responders.
