Population Registries

A population-based registry contains records for people diagnosed with a specific type of disease who reside within a defined geographic region.

In European Nordic countries, a comprehensive registration of data for a high proportion or all of the population allows linkage between government-administered patient registries that may include hospital encounters, diagnoses and procedures, such as the Norwegian Patient Registry, the Danish National Patient Registry or the Swedish National Patient Register.
