VIKING II was made possible thanks to Medical Research Council (MRC) funding. We aim to better understand what might cause diseases such as heart disease, eye disease, stroke, diabetes and others by inviting 4,000 people with 2 or more grandparents from Orkney and Shetland to complete a questionnaire and provide a saliva sample. This data dictionary outlines what volunteers were asked and indicates the data you can access. To access the data, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
