PSS003601 Cases were individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD). PD cases were identified from three different sources: (1) participants were asked in a follow-up interview if they had ever been informed by a physician to have PD and, if yes, the age at which the diagnosis was ascertained, (2) all diagnoses containing the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision code 332 (PD) from 1990 to 2018 in public and private hospitals were identified via a computer-assisted record linkage analysis of the cohort database with the nationwide hospital discharge database, (3) record linkage of the cohort database with three public hospital–based PD registries in Singapore through July 31, 2018, was carried out via database linkage. All identified cases were reviewed to confirm that the diagnosis was primary PD according to the criteria defined by the Advisory Council of the USA National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
