This study will evaluate the quality of self-reports of pregnancy history information provided by female spouses enrolled in the Agricultural Health Study (AHS), a prospective cohort study of the occurrence of chronic disease among pesticide applicators and their spouses. Spouse self reports of pregnancy history information will be compared to those constructed from vital record data. Findings from this study will provide insights into the quality of pregnancy history information available in the AHS and preliminary data for future proposals.
