Overview KORA Cohort

The four surveys S1-S4, which have been conducted since 1984 at five-year intervals, form the basis for long-term epidemiological research in the Augsburg area. At regular intervals the S1-S4 participants are invited to take part in follow-up surveys and examinations. The main emphasis here is on diabetes, cardio-vascular diseases and lung diseases as well as on environmental issues.

Since 2008, the KORA studies have also focused on research into health in old age. From 2008 – 2014, as part of a project funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), a study was conducted to examine how people manage their lives in old age despite multiple diseases, declining capabilities and emotional health limitations.

Over the years, numerous smaller-scale examinations and surveys on special issues have taken place.
