Blood donor behaviour in Greece : implications for health policy.
Blood donation behaviour was studied in 809 residents of the Greater Athens area to identify socio-economic and attitudinal factors and level of knowledge about blood donation related to donor behaviour.
The sample was randomly selected and consisted of men and women aged 18-65, the legally defined age for donation.
According to stepwise regression analysis, blood donation (40.8% of the study population) was found to be correlated with gender, place of birth, occupation and knowledge about donation.
Donors were more likely to be men than women; students and military recruits than professionals and scientists; and those with higher knowledge scores regarding donation.
