On this page, you can find research tools that provide an overview of the available data as well as detailed information on how to use the SHP data.

We always recommend to start out with our user guide that covers most of the questions both beginners and more experienced users might have. We also have a complementary user guide for the pilot study of the SHP IV, LIVES FORS Cohort as well as SHP LIVES Vaud users.

All the documentation as well as our questionnaires are available on FORSbase.
