  • a Correlation = 0.652; percentage of agreement = 68.7%; percentage of agreement (±1 year) = 91.2%; κ = 0.391.

  • b From the 445 women for whom we were able to determine whether or not they had a Pap smear at KPC within the past 3 years, a total of 58 were excluded from this table because it was impossible to determine the actual time interval since their last Pap smear at KPC.
