Intro This is a blog post-chaperon for the R-Ladies meet-up Abuja. We are talking R in epidemiology, practical aspects of being R-user and going through data-supported example of how to use R for data aggregation and visualization.
Case study of using R & tidyverse to wrangle and graphically describe publicly available Nordic datasets
In this post I will explore the use of medications, which are indicated to stop migraine episodes or to prevent them. I will use publicly available aggregated data on prescribed medication in Denmark between 1996 and 2019.
Data Several months have passed since I uploaded Swedish drug utilization data and the structure has changed since then. This time I will focus on antidepressants use in Sweden in more detail 🤓
In this post (Part II), I will look into the Danish national trends on of sedatives, antidepressants, anti-psychotics and anxiolytics utilization in women. Then I’d like to compare Danish national trends with Swedish national trends from Part I.
Nordic open access databases Nordic countries have databases with national aggregated data on, e.g. drug utilization, openly available. These databases are a great asset - you can investigate national trends for your curiosity or for research.
