Table 3 Response rates 3 and 12 months after stroke. Response rates for self-rated health, symptoms of depression and general symptoms 3 and 12 months after stroke.

From: Self-rated health, symptoms of depression and general symptoms at 3 and 12 months after a first-ever stroke: a municipality-based study in Sweden

ASSESSMENT 3 months (n = 145) 12 months (n = 135)
Self-rated health 105 (72%) 98 (73%)
Symptoms of depression1) 91 (63%) 96 (71%)
General symptoms2) 106 (73%) 97 (72%)
  1. 1) At 3 months: 65 (71%) responded to nine questions, 11 (13%) to eight questions and 15 (16%) to six or seven questions. At 12 months: 77 (80%) responded to nine questions, 11 (11%) to eight questions, and 8 (8%) to six or seven questions.
  2. 2) At 3 months, the number of non-responders to the questions about 30 symptoms varied from 38 (26%) to 42 (29%), with a median value of 27%. At 12 months, the number varied from 38 (28%) to 65 (48%), with a median value of 30%. There was a tendency at 3 months, and a strong tendency at 12 months, to respond to a lesser extent to the last questions (pain in the joints, backache, pain in the legs, sweating, difficulty urinating).
