The Midspan Studies

The name Midspan is given to four separate occupational and general population cohort studies based in Scotland. The three original studies took place between 1964 and 1976.

Twenty years later the next generation was studied when offspring of couples in the original Renfrew/Paisley Study were recruited into the Family Study.
