My project is  'Multimorbidity, operationalization and social epidemiolgy of multimorbidity'. People with low social status, on average have worse health, both somatic and mental. I investigate the prevalence of multimorbidity in a general population, and its association to socioeconomic position, sex and age. I explore several definitions of multimorbidity. I also investigate how different definitions of multimorbidity and its determinants, associates with mortality.

The data are from HUNT3, the third wave of the HUNT Study, performed in 2006-08. I have created a complete list of chronic conditions in HUNT3, from which different operationalizations of multimorbidity can be derived.
Supervisors: Erik R Sund, Steinar Krokstad, Johan H. Bjørngaard and Kirsty Douglas, ANU.
