Description

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity (WHO definition). Self-perceived health is a good indicator of the general well-being of a population. Another criterion for assessing the general state of health is the occurrence of chronic diseases or pain. Health-related quality of life, in turn, maps the physical, mental, social and environmental components of well-being.

The results come from the Austrian Health Interview Survey (ATHIS), which is carried out every six years starting in 2019 (previously 2006/07 and 2014).
