The public health survey in Hordaland 2018
The public health survey in Hordaland will take place in January and April 2018.
The first group will be invited in mid January. All questionnaires are electronic. In case of techinical problems, these will be corrected before the next and main group will get their questionnaires in April 2018.
The purpose of the survey is to gather information that your county and local authorities can use for providing public healthcare. In addition to statistics to support local public health activities, we also wish to use the information we collect for research, with a view to improving public healthcare.
To achieve the best possible analyses and for quality control purposes, it may be appropriate to collect information from other sources, including data on households, country of origin, employment, income and health. This data will be obtained from the registers of Statistics Norway.
What happens to the information you provide?
The details you provide will be stored and processed in compliance with applicable personal data protection regulations. The county and local authorities will only receive anonymised data files from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health for further analysis.
All analyses at an individual level will be carried out by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health or other research institutions approved by regional research ethics committees. It will not be possible to identify individuals in the statistics or in research resulting from the survey. Results will only be published concerning groups and never at individual level.
The survey has been approved by the Data Inspectorate and adheres to the rules in the Personal Health Data Filing System Act.
