Epidemiological studies of diabetes mellitus in denmark 1. a case finding method based on the national service conscript registry


, : Epidemiological studies of diabetes mellitus in denmark 1. a case finding method based on the national service conscript registry. Diabetologia 19(4): 355-358

To provide unbiased material for epidemiological studies of diabetes mellitus a case finding method based on the Danish National Service Conscript Registry and death certificates is presented and discussed. Eight Danish total male birth cohorts, totaling 320,162 persons, were observed as to the occurrence of diabetes mellitus during the first 20 yr of life, and it is concluded that the conscript registry represents an ideal basis for case identification, if the individual cases are further elucidated. The material is estimated to be .apprx. 95% complete. The main source of error originates from omissions when the registries are scrutinized. The cumulative incidence rates for the birth cohorts range from 1.3-3.2 per 1000; in the total material 2.4 per 1000.
