2010


Samples for each region and a national sample


The population aged 16 and above


Covers all Danish regions


16 and above


Response rate of 60 per cent with more women than men having participated. For men, the lowest response rate is among the age group 16-24, for women it is lowest among 75 and above. Further, the response rate is lower among singles, residents with a non-western background, and residents in the Capital Region of Denmark and Region Zealand. Data is weighted on gender, age, education, income, employment status, family type, ethnic origin, number of doctor's visits in 2007, admissions to hospitals in 2007, whether the person owns or rents a home, and whether the person is listed as 'research protected', which means they can not be contacted for scientific research.


Covers the following indicators: Health behaviour, sickliness, contact to general practitioner, social relations. Health behaviours include smoking, physical activity, alcohol consumption, diet, over- and underweight. Sickliness includes long illness, specific diseases and illnesses, pain and discomfort, and absence due to illness. Contact to general practitioner. Social relations includes family, friends and loneliness.
