Coverage


First round in 1997 consisted of a random sample of people born in 1920, 1925, 1930, 1940 and 1945 from the CPR-register. The response rate was 70% (5,864 individuals), which was lower among the oldest and those living alone, and higher among the younger and those living in good housing. The second round in 2002 had a response rate of 88% among those re-interviewed and 83% overall. In the third round in 2007, the overall response rate was 74%. 7,010 of the 9,633 interviewees had participated in 1997 and/or 2002.
