Abstract

Purpose

This study was conducted to assess the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and perceived health status of the Turkish population.

Methods

The data came from a nationwide survey, which was conducted by Ministry of Health on prevalence and risk factors for chronic diseases in Turkey, with a representative random sample of 18,477 people aged ≥ 15 years from Turkey. Each family physician invited two individuals selected from their registered population to the Family Health Center, conducted the survey by face to face interviews using an electronic form. HRQOL was determined using EQ-5D-3L scale.

Results

In Turkish population, each four women out of 10, two men out of 10 have problems in pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression dimensions of the scale; three women out of 10, one man out of 10 have some or severe problems in mobility. Proportion of people without health problems (health state 11,111) were 64,1% in men, 40,7% in women. The mean VAS score for males was 71.5 ± 0.2 (95% CI 70.9–72.1), 66.4 ± 0.2 (95% CI 65.8–66.9) for females (p < 0.05).The most important determinants of having a problem in any of the five dimensions are age, gender, education, diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, stroke, alzheimer, cancer, renal failure. The OR of having some or severe problems in any dimensions was 4.6 (95% CI 38–5.4) for over 65–74 and 7.5 (95% CI 5.8–9.6) for over 75 compared to 15–24 age group.

Conclusions

The perceived health level and HRQOL is worse in women, in older age groups, in people from lower socioeconomical status.
