The Danish National Health Survey


Primary variables


In 2010, 2013 and 2017, the five regions, the Danish Health Authority and the National Institute of Public Health at the University of Southern Denmark investigated the health and illnesses of the adult population - Danes' Health - The National Health Profile.

The survey covers the presence and distribution of health and health-related quality of life, health behaviour, illness, contact with GP and social relations, meaning data that is not available in the part of the national Danish information systems that covers illness, mortality and social events in treating institutions.

The aim of the survey is to provide an overview of adult Danes' health, illness and wellbeing and to elucidate trends in this field in recent years.

Data collection is based on questionnaires circulated to a whole range of Danes throughout the country. The response rate has been between 54-59%. The plan is for Danes' health to be surveyed again in 2021.
