The HUNT Study - a longitudinal population health study in Norway
The Nord-Trøndelag Health Study (The HUNT Study) is one of the largest health studies ever performed. It is a unique database of medical histories, both personal and family histories, collected during three intensive studies. The fundamental strategy is to earn and maintain the confidence of the population we work with, as is necessary for any successful population study. This strategy has resulted in extraordinarily high participation rates, given us a good base for further health surveys in the county and an excellent research environment.
