Description

 The objective of this survey was to evaluate the results of health promotion programs in Toon City. Two thousands residents of Toon City (N=2000) between the ages of 20 and 64 were selected at random, and distributed with a questionnaire that dealt with family structure, health condition, subjective assessment of personal health and interest in undergoing annual medical check-ups. There were 834 respondents to the questionnaire. For men, there was no statistically significant relationship between the level of subjective assessment of personal health and whether or not they underwent annual medical check-ups. In contrast, for women, there was a statistically significant difference between the level of subjective assessment of personal health and whether or not they underwent annual medical check-ups (p=0.03) Women who had a high level of subjective assessment of personal health tended to receive annual medical checkups more frequently than those who had a low level of subjective assessment. We suggest that it is not sufficient that
residents consider themselves to be in good health, and that it is necessary to promote regular health examinations for the early detection and prevention of lifestyle- affecting disorders. The key point to increasing the rate that retired men undergo medical check-ups is to find concrete methods of maintaining men's motivation in looking after their own health and to analyze their subjective assessment of personal health.

 この調査の目的は,東温市の健康増進活動を評価するためである. アンケートは,東温市在住の20 歳から64 歳の2000 人に無作為に配布され,内容は家族構成,健康状態,主観的健康感と健康診断受診状況である. 834 人から回答を得た。男性においては,主観的健康感尺度と健康診断受診の有無について統計学的有意差が認められた(p=0.03). 一方,女性は統計学的有意差が認められなかったが,主観的健康感尺度が高い人が,主観的健康感の低い人に比較して,健康診断を受診していた。われわれは,主観的健康感において住民が「まあ健康」と考えていることは不十分であり,それら住民に対して,生活習慣病の早期発見と予防のための定期的健康診断受診をすすめることが必要であると考えた. 健康診断をつける退職男性が彼ら自身の健康状態に関心をもつ動機を維持する具体的方法と男性の主観的健康感を解析することが重要な鍵と思われる.
