Notes

The samples are stored in -80C and the data files are stored on a mainframe computer in a database and backed up daily from a file server. Entry of new data is being performed daily, enabling the maintenance of a current, up-to-date database. Data are maintained in a relational database management system (Access) that enables data to be stored in tables with each field’s properties easily defined. To maintain data integrity and the relationship between data/fields/tables, each is linked by a common key field being a unique protocol number. The database files are readily converted for use in statistical packages. The databases are password protected and accessible only to research staff.

The data are collected by clinical assessments and questionnaires.The data collection started in 1993 and is ongoing. Since 1993 individuals randomly selected from the electoral rolls in 1993 have been returning every few years to the study centre at Barwon Health, to have their bone mineral density measured and their health monitored.

The data collection was supported in the early 1990s with funding from the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VHPF). Subsequent core funding was secured from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the Geelong Region Medical Research Foundation, Barwon Health, Perpetual Trustees, the Dairy Research and Development Corporation, The University of Melbourne, the Ronald Geoffrey Arnott Foundation, ANZ Charitable Trust, the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research and Amgen (Europe) GmBH.
