Project Details

Description

The purpose of this proposal is to provide descriptive and
analytic population-based data on the occurrence of and risk
factors for mental retardation in Rochester, Minnesota, from
1960 through 1984. The study will extend and complete an
ongoing mental retardation project covering 1960-1964. All
medical and school records will be reviewed. This information
will then provide incidence rates and secular trends for mental
retardation for the periods of the study. A case-control analysis
of the cohort will be done to identify risk factors associated with
an increased risk for mental retardation, including prenatal,
perinatal, and postnatal events. Long-term follow-up of the
cases for comparative morbidity, mortality, and length of
survivorship will also be provided.
