The authors present the results of a systematic bibliographical search on prospective community studies in developing countries. They provide information on 30 studies and define "prospective community study" as including three elements: the follow-up of a sizeable population, geographically defined, over a period of several years, the size and duration of which should cumulate to a number of person-years of at least 50,000; data on the whole population gathered through a demographic surveillance system; and a multidisciplinary approach. A summary of the selected studies as a whole is presented, as is more detailed information on topics covered and research findings for individual studies.
