"An important feature of Lifelines is the possibility to enrich the collected data with micro-data from Statistics Netherlands. Such linkage offers us the unique opportunity to study the impact of chronic diseases on employment transitions."
“In the Lifelines cohort we identified a remarkable high percentage (>50%) of untreated CVD risk factors suggesting that not all opportunities to reduce the CVD burden are utilized.”
"Linking available microdata from the Lifelines Cohort Study to the medication data of the widely researched prescription database, IADB.nl enhances the possibilities for future pharmaco-epidemiological studies."
