Inventory of Pregnancy and Birth Cohort studies


The Strategic Knowledge Cluster on Early Childhood Development (SKC-ECD), in partnership with the Maternal, Infant, Child and Youth Research Network (MICYRN) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), has compiled an Inventory of Pregnancy and Birth Cohort studies in Canada. The inventory lists Canadian cohort studies that are completed, ongoing, or in development. It provides detailed information on the content and design of such studies, and compares features amongst studies to facilitate both national and international comparisons. This initial version provides information on over 45 studies.
