In HUNT3, a total of 93 860 residents were invited in the period from October 2006 to June 2008. The scientific programme of HUNT3 included several main public health issues as in HUNT2, but included also topics like culture participation and religious affiliation. Optimal handling and storage of blood and urine samples were given high priority, as part of the establishment of a new up-to-date biobank.*
