Prematurity and Cause of Death: A longitudinal analysis of 1 million Norwegian births

Project Overview

To determine the long-term effects of preterm birth on survival, reproduction, and next-generation preterm birth, a population-based, observational, longitudinal study was conducted using registry data on births and deaths from for more than 1 million men and women in Norway.
