|Abstract:||Nearly 45% of the adult disease burden is attributable to non-communicable diseases (NCD). NCD are rising worldwide due to population ageing, urbanization and globalization and affects especially those with low socio-economic state. SAPALDIA, the Swiss cohort study on air pollution and lung and heart diseases in adults performed its third survey (S3) in 2010/2011, after the first survey (S1) in 1991 and the second (S2) in 2002/3. While the study keeps its original focus on long-term effects of air pollution, the focus is expanding to chronic disease and to a broader range of risk factors as the cohort grows older. The purpose of this paper is to outline the design of S3.|
