Comparison between log derived and questionnaire derived follow up data

Log derived data were provided by parents who recorded daily respiratory symptoms in a log. These were compared with results from a standardised questionnaire taken at age 3 years (n = 132). Comparisons were made between logs and questionnaires for “ever wheezing following RSV LRTI” and “wheezing during the past 12 months”. Data are shown as number (%).
