Abstract

The Study of Dementia in Swedish Twins is a study of dementia in a defined population of twins. The goals included estimating heritability of Alzheimer's disease and identifying risk and protective factors in twin pairs discordant for the disease. The data, including not only diagnoses and age of onset but also extensive information about potential environmental risk factors, are now archived as Study ICPSR 25963 at National Archive for Computerized Data on Aging, Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, at the University of Michigan, and available for researchers to use. Up to the time of archiving, 215 cases of dementia have been identified from a base sample of 2,394 individuals.
