The use of a national hospital register for hypothesis generation


Administrative data collected in large registers such as the Danish National Inpatient Register can be used to generate and even test hypotheses on associations between environmental health hazards and hospitalization. This paper describes the necessary record linkages and transformations before an outcome file can be made available in a database. Special attention is drawn to the question of confidentiality.
