Additional information regarding sample selection. - Random selection by unequal probability sampling design. Over-representation of individuals with a higher non-voluntary probability according to the usual variables (age, sex, PCS). Random selection is conducted by the French National Old Age Pension Fund (CNAV) with the national inter-scheme directory of those receiving national health insurance (RNIAM), matched with the French National Career Management System (SNGC). – The invitation to participate is provided along with an invitation to attend a health examination in one of the health examination clinics (CES). Randomly selected individuals receive a letter describing the project and CES, along with a reply card.
Database objective
Main objective The objective is to establish a major epidemiological representative cohort of the general population and large workforce, in order to contribute to the development of epidemiological research and to provide information regarding public health.

- This is an infrastructure for epidemiological research based on the active workforce, quality and diversity of data and surveillance procedures. Objectives focus on the epidemiology of chronic illness, ageing, behaviour and the environment, as well as determining occupational and social health factors. It may also allow projects to be initiated for various topics, given to the wide accessibility for researchers.

- This is a public health tool that supports the State and CNAMTS public health objectives and assesses the achievement of these objectives through a comprehensive monitoring tool and the collection of diverse information, due to the varied and supplementary methods that call on various data sources.

- This is an epidemiological monitoring tool through a partnership established with the French Institute for Public Health Surveillance (InVS) (particularly on the topic of occupational risk from the Department of Occupational Health (DST)-InVS).

Procedures
Data collection method Inclusion: self-assessment questionnaires completed at home + periodic health examination in a clinic for the collection of health data (clinical, paraclinical), and supplementary questionnaires (occupational exposure throughout life, self-administered questionnaire to be completed in clinics by females). - Active follow-up: annual self-administered questionnaire sent to the subject’s home by post; invitation to attend a clinic (CES) every 5 years is planned for the entire cohort – Passive follow-up of socio-professional events and health data. Major socio-professional events are regularly extracted from the CNAV database (Annual Declaration of Social Welfare Data, Quarterly Personal Data, unemployment, absence due to illness, RMI, maternity). Health data regarding vital status and cause of death is available from the National Directory for The Identification of Natural Persons (RNIPP) and the CépiDc-INSERM database; major health events are extracted from the National Health Insurance Cross-Schemes Information System (SNIIRAM), such as: reimbursement data, long duration disease (LDD) and for each hospital stay: principal diagnosis and associated diagnoses, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Participant monitoring Yes
Details on monitoring of participants The follow-up period should be as long as possible due to the broad cohort objectives. As such, the duration is indefinite. As the included population ages throughout the cohort follow-up, participants will need to be changed so that the sociodemographic structure remains comparable to the source population over time.
Links to administrative sources Yes
Linked administrative sources (detail) PMSI, SNIIRAM, CNAV, CépiDc.
