1. Examine the construct validity, short-term stability, internal consistency and
item-response performance of a health-related needs assessment self-report instrument

survivors to enhance the heterogeneity of the respondent pool;

3. Describe the met and unmet health-related needs and their covariates in a large,
stratified, random sample of childhood cancer survivors;

4. Evaluate the sample selection methods, length of time to complete recruitment, and
response rates in the study sample.
