- The first phase of the follow-up study involved the administration of a baseline interview and annual telephone interviews during the period 1979-1986. The follow-up study was conducted in four phases by means of a mailed questionnaire, the last of which was carried out between 1995 and 1998. Information on all cancer diagnoses, mortality, and a variety of exposures, including exogenous hormone use, adolescent and adult diet, physical activity, body weight, and occupation was collected over the four phases of the follow-up study.
