AbstractRelatively limited information is available about the oral health in the Guangdong Province of Southern China, the closest neighbor to Hong Kong. The study intended to explore the oral health status, knowledge, attitudes, and dental care utilization in the Guangdong population as a basis for formulating strategies for oral health prevention and treatment. Through multi-stage stratified and quota-sampling, individuals from urban as well as rural communities were selected (5- to 6-; 12-; 35- to 44-; and 65- to 74-year-olds; total N = 6251). Structured interviews and clinical examinations were performed. Inter-examiner reliability was high (K = 0.60-0.96). Samples of community water were taken for fluoride assessment. Overall, the sample surveyed was acceptably representative of the population, with some under-representation of rural residents and agricultural workers. Re-weighting was performed in appropriate analyses. The data analysis model used in the Second International Collaborative Study was used as a guide for the present data analysis. This approach has not previously been used on a Mainland Chinese population.
