It is revealed that family longevity most high - III stage (both parents older than 90-100 years, several relatives of the same age), rare (in 10-15% of cases) - usually with long-lived and mostly on the territory of Abkhazia. On the contrary, the lowest - level I family longevity (the age of one of parents or other relatives 80-89 years) is observed in Kyiv and in the Poltava region. An intermediate position is occupied by persons with long relatives of different age (stage II). Persons without long relatives (0 degree) prevail among younger surveyed (aged 80-89 years), which more clearly evident in the group of men.
It is established that the health of many years people also depends not only on the presence or absence of long relatives, their number, but also on the degree of relationship, the age at which they lived (table. 50).
During examination 1522 people aged 80-89 years, living in Kyiv, Poltava region and Abkhaz ASSR, it is shown that the higher the degree of hereditary security, the better long-term health of the people and Vice versa. Especially expressed this dependence in men: among those who do not have long relatives (AL-), in particular the group of persons 80-89 years, the share of practically healthy ("good") is 38,4%, in the group of persons with long relatives of the most low - I level, this indicator is equal to 46,5%, II stage - 48,4%, III stage - 51,4 %.
In women, the link between health and family character of longevity is not so pronounced. This fact once again confirms previously expressed position on the importance of genetically female advantage in maintaining the health to old age.
In men compared with women and marked slightly higher (but not statistically significant) correlation relationship between levels of health and family longevity - g = 0,12 (women 0,07).
A very clear relationship is established in the study of health effects of belonging to a social group: men of the same age in the group of farmers: health indicators higher than that of employees, and the latter is higher than that of workers (table. 51). While Abkhaz farmers compared with poltavskij have the best performance. Correlation relationships between these parameters is higher and more statistically significant (r= 0,23-0,21).
Confirmed the dependence of the state of health from the place of residence: among men age - in the past, residents of large cities - at the time of the survey were practically healthy 35,6%among residents of small cities - 42,4%among rural residents - 49,1%.
Further in-depth analysis showed that the differences between the compared categories long people in relation to their health are even more clearly. This applies both to persons selected as the level of family longevity, and belonging to different social groups.
