Factors Influencing Agreement between Self-Reports and Biological Measures of Smoking among Adolescents.
Dolcini, M. Margaret; And Others
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v6 n4 p515-42 1996
Reviews 28 studies comparing adolescent self-report of smoking with biological indicators. Identifies four factors limiting agreement: biases in self-report due to limitations of biological measures; limitations of self-report measures; social desirability; and analytic and statistical issues. Concludes that, with optimal measurement, self-report validity is good. Offers recommendations on obtaining accurate self-reports and on future research. (EV)
