Dataset is not available.
This table provides data about the lifestyle and preventive behaviour of the Dutch population. It comprises the following aspects:
- use of alcohol
- length, weight, people who are underweight and overweight
- use of contraceptive pill
- preventive research
- influenza vaccination
- physical activity
The data are based on the Health Interview Survey conducted by Statistics Netherlands. They can be broken down by sex and age. The Health Interview Survey is a continuous survey. Its population consists of Dutch residents of all ages in private households.
Data available from 2010 up to and including 2013
Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are definitive.
Changes as of 22 March 2018:
None, this table has been discontinued.
When will new figures be published?
Not applicable. This table has been discontinued. Figures from 2014 onwards can be found in other tables, see paragraph 3.
- Smoking, 12 years or over
- The survey questions about smoking are put to persons aged 12 years or older.
- % of persons in the population who answered 'yes' to the question: Do you smoke occasionally? Refers to persons aged 12 years or older.
- Daily smokers
- % of persons in the population who answered 'yes' to the question: Do you smoke every day? Refers to persons aged 12 years or older.
- Alcohol consumption, 12 years and older
- The survey questions about alcohol consumption are put to persons aged 12 years or older.
- Heavy drinker
- Percentage of persons who are heavy drinkers. Refers to persons aged 12 years or older. In 2010 and 2011 the definition of a heavy drinker was a person that drinks at least 6 glasses of alcohol on one day at least once a week. From 2012 onwards there is a distinction between men and women. For men still goes that a heavy drinker is a person who drinks at least 6 glasses of alcohol on one day at least once a week. For women goes that a heavy drinker is a person who drinks at least 4 glasses of alcohol on one day at least once a week. Due to this change in definition the figures of 2010 and 2011 cannot be compared very well with the figures of 2012 onwards.
- Excessive drinker
- Percentage of persons who are excessive drinkers. Refers to persons aged 12 years or older. For 2010 and 2011 goes that an excessive drinker is a person who drinks 21 glasses of alcohol or more a week. From 2012 onwards there is a distinction between men and women. For mean goes that an excessive drinker is a person who drinks more than 21 glasses of alcohol a week. For women goes that an excessive drinker is a person who drinks more than 14 glasses of alcohol a week. Due to this change in definition the figures of 2010 and 2011 cannot be compared very well with the figures of 2012 onwards.
- Height and weight
- Height: respondent's reported height in centimetres without shoes. Weight: respondent's reported weight in kilogrammes without clothes. For pregnant women this refers to the weight prior to pregnancy.
- Under- and overweight, 4 years or older
- The body mass index (BMI) indicates whether a person is overweight or underweight; it is defined as weight (in kilogrammes) divided by the square of height (in metres). The BMI is a generally accepted indicator to determine whether an adult , aged 20 years or older, is overweight or underweight. The BMI criteria are:
Underweight: BMI < 18.5.
Normal weight: 18.5 =< BMI < 25.0.
Overweight: BMI >= 25.0
Moderately overweight: 25.0 =< BMI < 30.0.
Seriously overweight: BMI >= 30.0.
For younger persons, up tot the age of 19 years, different cut off values are being used.
- Percentage of persons older whose BMI is less than 18.5 kg/m2. Different cut off values are being used for persons under the age of 20 years. For persons younger than 18 years these values correspond with BMI-values of 17,0 kg/m2 for adults. For 18 and 19 year old persons the cut off values are being estimated by linear interpolating between the values of persons aged 17 and 20.
- Normal weight
- Percentage of persons whose BMI is in the range of 18,5 kg/m2 and 25,0 kg/m2. Different cut off values are being used for persons under the age of 18 years. These values correspond with BMI-values of 17,0 kg/m2 and 25,0 kg/m2 for adults.
- Degree of overweight
- Moderately overweight
- Percentage of persons whose BMI is in the range of 25,0 kg/m2 and 30,0 kg/m2. Different cut off values are being used for persons under the age of 18 years. These values correspond with BMI-values of 25,0 kg/m2 and 30,0 kg/m2 for adults.
- Seriously overweight
- Percentage of persons whose BMI is 30.0 kg/m2 or more. Different cut off values are being used for persons under the age of 18 years. These values correspond with BMI-values of 30,0 kg/m2 for adults
- Use of contraceptive pill,16 to 49 years
- Percentage of women taking the contraceptive pill. The figures refer to women in the age category 16 to 49.
