Outcomes from large scale health surveys suggest women's morbidity and medical care utilization to be higher than men's. Survey findings have often been questioned on methodological grounds, a main criticism being the subjective nature of the data on which the alleged sex differences are based.
Moreover, health differences vary with the type of illness (behavior) that is assessed.
Instead of asking subjects about their illness experiences, we performed analyses on data derived from a continuous registration of morbidity as presented in four general practices in the Netherlands.
