One of the four pilot projects of the Lung Cancer Initiative sponsored by the Department of Defense measures radon levels in the participants homes. Radon exposure is the second leading cause of Lung Cancer. The case-control study has a targeted accrual of 1800 with a case-control ratio of 1:4. The long-term radon kits remain in the home for 90 days and the participants are asked to mail the test kit to the company for analysis. In order to maximize the test kit return rate, reminder calls to the participants occurred 90 days after the home visit.
