Chronic diseases

In 2019 more than 2.8 million of persons over 15 years in Austria stated that they have a chronic disease or a chronic health problem (1.3 million men, 1.5 million women). Chronic diseases and health problems increase with age and affect greater numbers of women than men in all age groups. While only a small amount of people aged 15 to 29 years has an ongoing health problem, about two thirds of the population aged 75 and above are affected (63% men, 66% women).
