Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An easy-to-use interactive program (QUEST) has been developed which facilitates the input, updating and checking of patient records from completed questionnaires possibly destined for statistical analysis by SPSS. Using the information about the data available in the SPSS control file, blank questionnaires can be generated, and up to date completed questionnaires printed. Selected cases can be printed out. QUEST is currently being used in four medical studies and one legal study. The program is written in standard Fortran-77 and makes full use of the new features of the language.
