Other databases which GoDarts can link data to
WALKER database was created from a longitudinal study of over 48,000 births in Dundee, Scotland from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s. The study recorded details of pregnancy, labour, birth and care up to the time of discharge for about 75% of all babies born in hospital in Dundee between 1952 and 1966. As over 70% of the cases involved in the study can still be identified, researchers can link the data from birth to other health outcome databases and look at health outcomes across generations, allowing researchers to investigate early (fetal) origins of adult diseases.
A longitudinal study is a research study that takes place over a number of years which means researchers can compare changes in particular details about individuals or events at various times throughout the study.
