Abstract

Purpose

This study examined the impact of different reporting period lengths on the accuracy of items measuring interference due to pain and fatigue with work, walking, and relations with others.

Methods

Six items from well-established instruments (Brief Pain Inventory, Brief Fatigue Inventory, SF-36) were investigated in a prospective study of 117 patients with chronic rheumatological illness. Daily ratings were compared with recall ratings of 1, 3, 7, and 28-day reporting periods.

Results

The level of recall ratings (RRs) for reporting periods of 3 days or more were significantly higher than the level of aggregated end-of-day (EOD) ratings. Correspondence between aggregated EOD and RRs was good (r ≥ .80) regardless of the length of the reporting period. Ratings of interference for a single day were highly correlated with aggregated EOD for up to 14 days prior to the single rating (r ≥ .76).

Conclusions

Recall ratings with reporting periods of up to a month yield good correspondence with aggregated daily ratings, although the absolute level of the rating will be inflated for recall periods of 3 days or longer.

In contrast to analyses of the correspondence between aggregated momentary reports and RRs in which we have adjusted average momentary reports for unreliability [7], we did not adjust averages of EOD reports for unreliability. We consider a set of obtained momentary reports as a random and incomplete sample of all possible moments of a reporting period. By contrast, the combination of EOD reports can be regarded as an exhaustive representation of all possible moments within a reporting period.
