The Hellenic Statistical Authority conducts a research about health population issues every five years since 2009. The research is attuned to the statistical surveys of the European Union members.
The 2019’s research on 8125 households, males and females over 15 years old gathers information concerning the use of health services, the maintenance of individual’s health and the factors involved such as nutrition, smoking, alcohol, fitness activity etc.
According to the 29th Informative Note of the GSDFPGE Observatory and based on the Hellenic Statistical Authority research, 44,8% women over 15 years old have had a mammography during the last couple of years (increase of 6,7% since 2014 :42%). 33,1% has never done mammography (decrease of 13,8% since 2014: 38,4%).
The results of health population for the following years 2014 and 2019 concerning the four main geographical regions are illustrated likewise:
In 2019, 77,1% of the female population claim that are in good health while in 2014 the percentage was 71%. Evidently there is an increase.
In 2019 the 81,9% of the male population claim that they are in good health. In 2014 the percentage was 78,9%.
This shows that the majority of female population realises the importance of prevention concerning female diseases, so programs in this direction will continue to be implemented.
