Health in general Questionnaire source: Q29 . The health of Europeans 1.The general of health of European Union citizens is good More than three-quarters (76%) of Europeans consider that they are in good health. Approximately one in five citizens believes that he or she is in very good health (21%) or has a more neutral position (19%) as regards his or her health. Only 5% of respondents described their health as bad (5%) or very bad (1%).

respondents in a majority of the new Member States tend to be more pessimistic about their health in general. Turkey is the only one where the levels are very close to the EU average. Citizens of the Baltic countries (from 5 to 11% of respondents from those countries consider themselves to be in very good health) while Hungarian citizens are more “negative” (11%) about their health in general. The percentages vary considerably from one Member State to another: a small majority of Latvians and Lithuanians (52%) consider that their health is good or very good while the corresponding percentage is close to or higher than 85% in Denmark (84%) and Ireland (87%). This time.

On the other hand. -5- . There are similar differences if only the results of the “very good” replies are taken into consideration: the Irish (43%) and Danish (44%) are again among those who consider that their health in general is very good.

This suggests that such people are aware of the negative health effects of a high body weight.EUROBAROMETER 64. Fairly logically.3 Health and food An analysis of the replies by socio-demographic variables reveals that men are more optimistic about their health. The heaviest respondents and those who consider that they are overweight are more likely to view their health negatively. while 89% of young people (aged between 15 and 24) consider that their health is good. age is a discriminating variable.

EUROBAROMETER 64.3 Health and food

A socio-demographic analysis of the results highlights that women (27%) tend to
be more likely to suffer from a long-standing illness or health problem.
Not surprisingly, the percentage of people who declared that they suffer from a
long-standing illness or have a health problem increases considerably with age.
Other than retired people for whom a high score is logical, it appears that the
health of people responsible for looking after the home and unemployed people is
worse than that of other categories.
Finally, the heaviest people and those who consider that they are overweight are
more likely to have a long-standing illness or health problem.

EUROBAROMETER 64.3 Health and food

The results of question 31 enable us to assess the importance of the respondent’s
health problems.
- Approximately 7 out of 10 Europeans have not been prevented from
performing “normal” activities over the last 6 months Approximately 7 out of 10 European Union citizens have not been prevented from
performing “normal” activities over the last 6 months and two out of ten were only
somewhat limited in their ability to perform such activities.
Once again, it is the Irish and inhabitants of a majority of Mediterranean countries
who seem to suffer the least from health problems. They were less likely to have
been prevented from performing activities for health reasons. On the other hand,
citizens from the Baltic States and several new Member States were more
frequently restricted in their activities because of health problems.
Among the candidate and accession countries, Turkish citizens also seem to be
healthier.

The results obtained for the socio-demographic variables as a whole confirm the
results recorded for the previous question: women (31%), the oldest
respondents (43%), those who left school the earliest (41%) and the
heaviest respondents (34%) are more likely to have been prevented from
performing activities for health reasons. This also applies to 87% of those who
consider that their health is bad.

The proportion of respondents who declared that they perform a lot of physical
activity at work also varies quiet considerably from one country to another: it varies
from 10% in Malta and Italy to 27% in Poland, the Netherlands and Lithuania. It
would be interesting to analyse these different percentages in the context of the
structure of professional activity in the various countries, in particular with regard
to the proportion of people working in the secondary or agricultural sectors.
The socio-demographic variables reveal significant differences for this question.
Men (23%), respondents aged from 25 to 54 (26-27%), and those who finished
their studies between the ages of 16 and 19 are among those who get the most
physical activity at work.
The professional occupation is the variable for which the differences are the most
pronounced and highlights the important level of physical activity at work among
manual workers (49%) and to a lesser extent self-employed people (31%).

22% declared that they got a lot of physical activity.
Although in all the countries participating in this survey, between 79% and 96% of

All Europeans seem to be aware of the health risks due to obesity. In all the countries participating in this survey. the percentage of people interviewed supporting this view exceeds 70%. As regards physical activity. Almost 95% of European Union citizens agree with the statement that obesity is a health danger. A strong majority of respondents (83%) agree with the statement that childhood obesity has increased over the last 5 years. In order to combat childhood obesity. Manual workers and self-employed people tend to be far more physically active at work. However. In more than half of the countries. More than 80% of Europeans consider that there are more adults with weight problems than 5 years ago. . Once again the priority given to the different measures proposed varies considerably from one Member State to another. Moreover. Young people and those who studied the longest seem to be the most likely to participate in such activities. while those in poor health and retired people mentioned more frequently “an illness or health problems”. there seems to be an obvious link between the respondent’s health. only 27% described their activity as intensive. Although almost 90% of EU citizens declared that they had performed some physical activity outdoors over the last 7 days. more than 40% of respondents do not have any of these activities.EUROBAROMETER 64. Few Europeans play sport or participate in recreational or leisure activities in an intensive way. while those who consider that their weight is right mentioned more frequently “staying healthy”. The level of physical activity of Europeans when moving from place to place seems relatively limited. this proportion is at least 80%. a slight majority (51%) of European Union citizens declared that they have performed some physical activity at work.3 Health and food Losing weight and staying healthy are the main reasons given by respondents to explain a change in their eating habits. Logically. weight and the intensity of the physical effort made when moving from place to place. the level of this activity is not particularly intense and varies considerably in Europe. European Union citizens are in favour of more physical activities at school and more education on healthy eating and exercise. In most countries. Although almost 90% of the people interviewed declared that they had performed some physical activity over the last 7 days by moving from place to place. only 22% of the respondents declared that they had performed a lot of physical activity. the heaviest people are the ones who mentioned most frequently “losing weight”. More than nine out of ten respondents consider that food advertising and promotion influences children in the choice of what they eat. More information for parents and education for children at school are seen as the best ways of improving children’s diets.93 - .

EUROBAROMETER 64. it is noteworthy that just over half of the people interviewed do not seem to have enough time to take advantage of the facilities in their area to be physically active. two out of three respondents consider that local sports clubs and centres offer many opportunities to be physically active.4 days to 1.94 - . The levels of activity vary considerably between Member States. Three-quarters of EU citizens declared that the area where they live offers sufficient opportunities to be physically active. The people interviewed declared that they spend on average just over six hours a day sitting during a normal day. In the 15 old European Union Member States. this average increased from 1. Finally. The time they spend sitting obviously depends to a large extent on their occupation and once again the average varies considerably from one Member State to another.7 days to intense physical activity over the last 7 days. . Moreover.3 Health and food European Union citizens devoted on average 1.6 days between 2002 and 2005.
