*Someone answered the phone and either 1) declined outright, 2) asked for a callback at another time (some made an appointment) but was not there at callbacks, or 3) stated that an eligible man may be in the household, but that man was never home when the number was redialed in follow-up. †Asked for a callback after answering some screening questions but was not there at callbacks. ‡Respondents declined to provide information that was critical to determining eligibility for inclusion. §Interviewers obtained postal addresses from eligible men who expressed interest in participating in a study of how “childhood experiences have affected adult men's health and well-being.” A description of the study and principal investigator and a consent form were mailed to these potential participants. Interviewers called men back 2 weeks later and administered a full telephone interview to those agreeing to participate. Participants received $15.
