The Yorkshire Health Study (previously known as South Yorkshire Cohort), is a longitudinal observational regional health study that has collected health information from residents of the Yorkshire and Humberside region since 2010.

With the help of many thousands of people across the region this study has achieved great success in amassing a data set of over 73,000 records from the public via online and paper questionnaires.


This data has provided valuable insight into the health of the people in Yorkshire and the Humber, helping researchers improve services for the people who need them most.

The study has already supported a number of research studies https://www.yorkshirehealthstudy.org/your-research-studies producing more than 30 published papers. https://www.yorkshirehealthstudy.org/publications
