Abstract

The time required for 458 women volunteers to respond to questions in a computer-based medical interview was related both to their age and to their formal education. When the analysis was restricted to the 220 women with a college degree, older women responded more slowly than their younger counterparts, and when the analysis was restricted to the 265 women between 18 and 30 years of age, women with less formal education took longer to respond. By contrast, the time required for the volunteers to record their responses was related only to age.
