Título Performance of self-reported occupational exposure compared to a job-exposure matrix approach in asthma and chronic rhinitis
Información bibliográfica Mar. 2009, Vol.66, No.3, p.154-160. Illus. 29 ref.
Resumen Self-reported exposure to vapours, gas, dust or fumes (VGDF) has been widely used as an occupational exposure metric in epidemiological studies of chronic lung diseases. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of VGDF for repeatability, systematic misclassification, and sensitivity and specificity against exposure likelihood by a job-exposure matrix (JEM). Data from two interviews two years apart of adults with asthma and chronic rhinitis were used. VGDF and JEM were also analysed among a subset of 199 subjects who reported the same job at both interviews using logistic regression analysis. The VGDF was found to be a useful assessment method for epidemiological studies of occupational exposure risk.
