  1. Resource Description
    "The UK General Practice Research Database (GPRD™) was started up in 1987 as the VAMP Research Data Bank. GPRD™ contains longitudinal data from the electronic medical records of patients from a large sample of general practices within the UK." "In any given year, GPs who are members of the GPRD™ collect data on about 2- 3 million patients, yielding about 37 million person-years of follow-up between 1987 and March 2002 (the last year of data collection in the data set at Penn). Continuous information has been collected for 6 years or more in most of the practices. About 5% of the UK population is included in the GPRD™, which is broadly representative of the general UK population in terms of age, sex, and geographic distributions." "EPIC licensed to Penn a static version of the GPRD™ (EPICGPRD™) which contains data from a total of 755 practices and has over 9 million patients with the most recent data collected through March 2002."
