Psychiatry Sweden – the register linkage | EPiCSS group
Psychiatry Sweden is a register created by linkage of several national and local registers in Sweden, via the unique personal identification number.
This register provides us with a unique opportunity for high quality research. The population in the register consists of all persons born 1932-2011 and their 1st and 2st degree relatives. For this large population (about 15 million persons) we have linkage to National registers, Stockholm registers, Survey data for a random sample, and biological data from three sub-populations.
All data in Psychiatry Sweden is anonymised, covered by ethical permits and stored in secure servers and with customary high confidentiality at Karolinska Institutet.
