Traduction en anglais : Lifestyle, living conditions and health status : A cross-sectional study among the saxon population in the period 1993 to 1994.
The aim of this cross-sectional study was to record the living conditions, lifestyle variables and health status in a part of the population of Saxony and to examine statistical relationships between the three categories.
The interview by post took place from March 1993 to August 1994.
The sample consisted of 602 participants, i.e. a return of 52.3%. The survey proved conditionally representative for the population of Saxony.
Statistical methods used were Chi2 test, H test, Spearman correlation and multiple regression procedures.
Males and females showed clear differences in their life-styles and in the state of health.
It was found that the lifestyle was associated with age.
The following variables were significantly associated with the subjective health status : sex, daily routine, number of negative life events, utilisation of preventive measures, contentment, age, and domicile.
Significant connections were found between the objective health status (number of chronic diseases) and the variables : utilisation of preventive measures, number of negative life events, employment, daily routine, smoking, alcohol consumption, contentment, and age.
In the statistical relationship the primary health status had the most distinct influence on the lifestyle and this covered the influence of lifestyle on health status.
