Beskrivning av uttaget:
Analysts and system developers at CEDAR, the Demographic Database, have delivered a data retrieval to the researcher Jessica Dimka, Oslo Metropolitan University, from the POPLINK database.

The aim of the project is to investigate disability as a risk factor for infectious disease, drawing on experiences during the 1918 influenza pandemic.

The project involves demographic and statistical analyses of data to determine whether people with disabilities were at greater risk of infection and/or mortality during the pandemic. It will also use quantitative and qualitative data to construct a simulation model for testing hypotheses about disease spread and potential interventions.

Data is retrieved from the database POPLINK, which is a population database designed for data retrievals to researchers from different disciplines with different types of research questions. The database contains data from church registers such as catechetical registers, migration registers, birth and baptism registers, marriage registers and death and burial registers. Individual data from these sources have been linked together, creating individual biographies. In addition, links have also been made between related individuals (relationship linking) as well as between parishes.
