The Norwegian Growth Cohort

The Norwegian Growth Cohort is a population-based health study consisting of data on height and weight from children aged 8 and 13 years. Waist width was also measured on most 8-year-olds.

Criteria for data access

The data sources have different purposes and are regulated by different laws and regulations. In order to access information from the data sources, what you plan to use the information for must be in accordance with the purpose of the data source.

The types of approvals and documents you must submit to access information depend on what you are applying for, what you are going to use the information for and how you are going to process it. We therefore recommend that you take the time to familiarize yourself with the application guides before starting the application process.
