A consortium of agricultural cohort studies
The objective of AGRICOH is to support and mantain collaboration and data sharing/pooling to research the association between agricultural exposures and different health outcomes, with emphasis on associations that involve rare exposures and/or health outcomes, and for which data pooling represents a significant gain in statistical power compared to analysis of individual cohorts.
