Abstract

Health interview surveys are important source of health information. All previous adult population-based health interview surveys in Croatia until CroHort, were one-off projects with very limited possibility of data comparison. CroHort enabled repeated survey of CAHS 2003 respondents with almost identical questionnaire, thus providing comparable data on trends of different risk factors as well as their relation to the specific outcomes. Next follow-up survey of the CroHort cohort is foreseen for 2013. Health interview survey according to Eurostat methodology (EHIS) on the new representative sample of adult Croatian population is planned for 2014. As the data from health interview surveys are valuable in health policy, efforts should be made to increase their use by policymakers in Croatia.

Abstract in Croatian

CroHort: HRVATSKA KOHORTNA STUDIJA KARDIOVASKULARNOG ZDRAVLJA – POZADINA, METODOLOGIJA I PERSPEKTIVA ----- Zdravstvene ankete značajan su izvor informacija o zdravlju stanovništva. Sve prethodne zdravstvene ankete provedene na odraslom stanovništvu Hrvatske bile su jednokratni projekti s vrlo ograničenom mogućnošću usporedbe podataka. Hrvatska kohortna studija kardiovaskularnog zdravlja (CroHort) omogućila je ponovno anketiranje ispitanika Hrvatske zdravstvene ankete 2003. tijekom 2008. godine putem gotovo identičnog upitnika, čime su dobiveni usporedivi podaci o trendovima različitih rizičnih čimbenika, kao i o njihovoj povezanosti sa specifičnim ishodima. Iduće ponovno anketiranje CroHort kohorte predviđeno je za 2013. godinu. Zdravstvena anketa prema Eurostatovoj metodologiji (EHIS) na novom reprezentativnom uzorku odraslog stanovništva Hrvatske planirana je za 2014. godinu. S obzirom da su podaci iz zdravstvenih anketa od velike vrijednosti za zdravstveno planiranje, potrebna su nastojanja da se njihovo korištenje u tom postupku u Hrvatskoj poveća.
