Abstract

Statistics on mortality and cause of death are of crucial importance to epidemiological research. The Cause of Death Register kept by Statistics Norway is the only national register including information on cause of death for all deceased persons registered as residents in Norway at their time of death, whether death occurred in Norway or abroad. This article presents historical information and guidelines for research access to individual data on cause of death.
