SIMSAM Aims (2014-2018)

The national SIMSAM network seeks to create an internationally leading research community for register-based research. It accomplishes this by:

 

  1. conducting, supporting, and initiating interdisciplinary research using Swedish register data;
     
  2. improving the quality of data for register-based research;
     
  3. enlarging the pool of scientific knowledge produced on the basis of Swedish national register data; 
                            
  4. supporting and sharing methodological developments in order to maximize the
    possibilities for the use of Swedish register data for research purposes; and
     
  5. encouraging and taking part in international research collaborations using register-based data.
