Project STULONG – an overview

There are two main goals of the Stulong project:

Risc factors of atherosclerosis were observed for 1 419 men in the years 1976–1999 according to project methodology. The primary data covers both entry and control examination. 244 attributes have been surveyed with each patient at entry examination and there are 219 attributes, which values are codes or results of size measurements of different variables. 10 610 control examination were further made, each examination concerns 66 attributes.

The goal of data mining is to find unsuspected relationships and to summarize the data in novel ways that are both understandable and useful to the data owner. The goals of data mining in the STULONG data are specified by a system of analytic questions.

A part of the STULONG project is also a research activity the goal of which is to make possible on-line data mining.

The STULONG project started in the the early seventies of the twentieth century as an extensive epidemiological study of atherosclerosis primary prevention. Data were collected at several departments. Most of the data was transferred into electronic form and was analysed by basic statistical methods. The data are now analysed by methods of data mining. There are several authors of the STULONG project.

There are some publications related to the STULONG project. LISp-Miner – an academic software system for Knowledge Discovery in Databases plays an important role in the STULONG project.
