Self-assessment of the health`s state by the population of Ukraine
Press release by Oleksii Lyshtva
On May 18-30, 2018, Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) conducted an all-Ukrainian public opinion poll. Data were collected from 2025 respondents living in 108 settlements in all oblasts of Ukraine (except for the AR of Crimea) with the method of personal interviewing. The sample was stochastic, and it is representative of the population of Ukraine aged 18 and above.
In Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts survey was conducted only in the territories that are controlled by the Ukrainian government.
The statistical sampling error (with a probability of 0.95 and for a design effect of 1.5) does not exceed:
3.3% — for indexes close to 50%,
2.8% — for indexes close to 25%,
2.0% — for indexes close to 10%,
1.4% — for indexes close to 5%.
Kyiv International Institute of Sociology monitors the dynamics of self-assessment of the state of health among the Ukrainians since 1995. Survey data show that over the past five years, the state of health of Ukrainian residents remains virtually unchanged: in comparison with 2013, research does not record either improvement or a statistically significant deterioration in how Ukrainian residents assess their own health status. However, if compared with 1995, it is noticeable that the level of the health self-esteem has increased.
