In Reply We thank Goltermann et al for their thoughtful Letter in response to our meta-analysis showing low agreement between prospective and retrospective measures of childhood maltreatment.1 Goltermann et al are interested in the reasons for such low agreement. As highlighted in the Discussion section of our article,1 we agree that low agreement may be partly attributable to methodological differences between prospective and retrospective measures.
