Data dictionary

To explore which data is available from The Maastricht Study, a data dictionary (DISQOVER) has been published online. This DISQOVER data dictionary contains in depth information about each variable available.

All variables of The Maastricht Study are divided into categories and subcategories. Browse through the category index in the data dictionary to find the categories and variables of your interest. A print version of the category index can be found below. You can also search for variables in the data dictionary by entering keywords in the search box. For more information on how to use the DISQOVER data dictionary, please consult the manual (see below).
