Project description

The purpose of this project is a register with reproductive data (N = 3500 female twins aged 18 – 46 years) supplementary to the existing perinatal register: the East Flanders Prospective Twins Survey. Both registers will provide data on the effect of nature/nurture in reproduction on the one hand and the course of reproduction throughout different generation on the other hand.
