Abstract

Investigating reasons for differing life expectancy and prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors between old and new states of the Federal Republic of Germany an epidemiological study in Western Pomerania - the population-based project Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP) - was planned.Prevalence and incidence of common risk factors, subclinical disorders and clinical diseases have been assessed since 1997 in five-year intervals. The third follow up (SHIP-3) was assessed between 2014 and 2016. In addition, an independent representative population sample was investigated between 2008 - 2012 (SHIP-TREND). Recently, the first follow up of this cohort has been started (SHIP-TREND-1). This paper reports the methodological approaches for detecting pneumological relevant morbidities in this population-based study. It aims to offer insights for potential cooperation with interested research groups.
