SIMSAM is short for ”Swedish Initiative for Research on Microdata in the Social And Medical Sciences”, an initiative supported by the Swedish Research Council. By giving priority to interdisciplinary, innovative register-based research, SIMSAM will contribute to better public health and increased knowledge of social issues – such as which factors in childhood result in increased risk for obesity or cancer later in life. The initiative also aims to promote improved and expanded use of registers in research and to share lessons learned. The SIMSAM network of 2014-2018 consists of six research nodes and one graduate school (SINGS).

A short, illustrative film "The benefits of using Nordic population registers for research purposes", developed by SINGS, can be accessed by clicking on the image below.

 

 

An information booklet on the importance and benefits of register-based research was produced under the management of SIMSAM-INFRA in April 2013. It contains examples of SIMSAM’s accomplishments and ongoing work in order to improve health and living conditions for the popula­tion by using existing Swed­ish registers. The booklet is meant to be informative for policy makers and the general public and perhaps it will also encourage increased scientific collaboration.
