Lung function tests and genetics are important to understand lung health and to investigate pathways that lead to an impaired lung function. The aim of this thesis was to study the epidemiology of impaired lung function including COPD, to unravel the genetic and non-genetic determinants, and finally to study the impact of impaired lung function on adverse health outcomes.
