Mikrocensus 1973, 3. quarter: Questions on Health


In the field of health statistics there are numerous data records available but for coping with the increasing tasks of health policies additional information is required. Mikrozensus provides representative data records which make targeted measures in the field of health policies possible. It is surprising that simple basic data such as body height and weight of the population are not available except for the body height and weight of schoolchildren, apprentices and members of the Austrian Armed Forces. Moreover, it is not known how many people are sick at a certain date and how often and how long these people stay away from school or work due to sickness or injury. Statistics conducted by health insurances or hospitals provide this information only to some extent. Another important aspect of this survey - like in all other Mikrozensus special surveys - is structuring the result according to social groups and various characteristics of the interviewees, something that is not possible with an administrative statistic.
