Social Prognosis of Stroke in Denmark

The Social Prognosis of Stroke in Denmark: Population-Based Cohort Studies

The aims of this project are to examine:

  1. the association between stroke and return to workforce
  2. the association between stroke and other aspects of the social prognosis such as personal and household income, days of sick leave, receipt of disability pension, and rates of divorce
  3. whether the associations between stroke and various aspects of the social prognosis are modified by socioeconomic status
  4. the association between a partner’s stroke and risk of adverse health and social outcomes
  5. the association between a parent’s stroke and risk of adverse health and social outcomes

This will be examined through nationwide population-based cohort studies in Denmark. The study population will include all patients who suffered a stroke between 1980 and 2018 plus partners and children of stroke patients. The comparison cohorts will be constructed through matching.
