    Croatian abstract

    UČESTALOSTI KARDIOVASKULARNIH ČIMBENIKA RIZIKA ----- Anketna ispitivanja čimbenika rizika su jedno od vrlo važnih sredstava za prikupljanje podataka za odlučivanje i organizaciju zdravstvenog sustava. Hrvatska zdravstvena anketa (HZA) je jedan takav primjer, kojem je cilj prikupljanje populacijskih, reprezentativnih i provjerenih podataka o učestalosti kardiovaskularnih čimbenika rizika. HZA uzorak je definiran tako da reprezentira 98% odrasle populacije Hrvatske, na temelju slučajnog odabira odraslog članak kućanstva koje je bilo odabrano na temelju složenog metodološkog pristupa. Dodatno je na anketi primijenjeno ponderiranje uzorka, koje je dodatno povećavalo reprezentativnost te se HZA smatra kao izvor reprezentativnih podataka za cijelu Hrvatsku ili šest zemljopisnih i administrativnih regija. Prvi krug projekta proveden je 2003. godine, s ukupno 9.070 ispitanika koji su bili uključeni u studiju. Drugi krug projekta provodi se tijekom 2008. godine. Metodološki pristup je promijenjen u kohortnu studiju, u koju su dodana nova pitanja. HZA predstavlja ne samo osnovicu za stvaranje podataka za odlučivanje u zdravstvu nego i kao zajednička platforma za veliki broj javnozdravstvenih istraživanja i važan izvor informacija za istraživanje.

    English abstract

    National risk factors surveys present very important tool for gathering population based health related information for policy. Croatian Adult Health Survey (CAHS) is such a tool, intended to collect population-based, representative and authoritative information on cardiovascular risk factors prevalence. The CAHS sample was designed to provide nearly complete coverage (98%) of the Croatian adult population, based on the random selection of the adult member of the household that was selected in the complex sampling scheme. Additionally, seven-step weighting scheme was applied to the dataset, in order to further increase the representativeness of the sample which is consequently considered to be representative for six geographical and administrative regions of Croatia, while it is considered only to be informative for the county-based estimates. The first cycle of the project took place in 2003, with a total of 9,070 respondents. The second project cycle is taking place in 2008. It has now been converted into the follow-up study (re-surveying the 2003 sample) and is being further supplemented with additional questions, qualitative investigation module and an intervention performed by the public health nurses. The CAHS provides not only the basis for health information for policy, but also serves as a platform for a number of ongoing public health collaborations and a valuable public health research resource.
