Abstract

Mammography utilization data were studied for 915 women from a combined sample of 1994 Missouri Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and a Special Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Project Evaluation Survey, as well as similar data from 6,784 new participants in Missouri’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Project during 1993-1994. Among women aged 40 and over, having some college education and having health insurance coverage were associated with a higher likelihood of ever having a mammogram. Education, age, health care, Pap testing, and smoking were identified as important predictors of compliance with recommended schedule of yearly mammography among women aged 50 and over.
