ETF - Cohort-sequential longitudinal databases Evaluation through follow-up

The Evaluation Through Follow-up (ETF) is a large cohort-sequential database which includes nine cohorts, including individuals born between 1948 and 1998. Each cohort comprises about 9000 pupils, sampled to be nationally representative.

Besides response to questionnaires, test data, and school achievement from the students, information is available from parents, teachers and principals for some cohorts. Statistics Sweden collects administrative information from the schools. With research ethical approval it is possible to apply for linkage with other sources of information by means of the Swedish Personal Identity Number. Thus it is possible to study relations among e.g., education, occupation, income and health. Such data linkage is administred by Statistics Sweden.
