At that time this was the first population-based study world-wide on the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Since then the cohort has been investigated another two times U1994 and 2007) with postal questionnaires and subgroups have been studied with whole-night sleep registrations, blood sampling, anthromometric measurements and oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT). Information has also been obtained from national registers on mortality, diseases and on occupational accidents.

Furthermore, published data have shown that obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a progressive disease an
