The purpose was to gather information on health, morbidity, living conditions, and lifestyle, to analyze and compare with previous survey results. Data were collected with interviews, self-completed questionnaires, clinical studies, anthropometric measurements, and blood tests. The following data collection instruments were included in the data collection process: CAGE, long IPAQ, revised Food Frequency Questionnaire, and GHQ-12.  Diet, smoking, alcohol, and physical activity were given special focus as subjects included in Inuuneritta II, the Greenland Public Health Program 2013-2019.
