Evaluation of the data validity in a new Danish national database for early detection of infants at risk. Pre-study.

Project Details


The project is supported by Aalborg University, the National Board of Health, Denmark and the municipality of Aalborg.

Since 2009 health data for all Danish children have been registered in a new national Danish database (Børnedatabasen) with a view to enabling the early detection of infants at risk. However, data are neither complete nor valid. Thus, the objective of the study is to identify where in the data-generating process mistakes occur in order to validate data in the database.
