The integral estimation of health condition

Most clearly emerges regional variability of the health status of long-lived people in the analysis of the integral index of General medical health assessment, received on the basis of expert method. This indicator kinda sums up all the scattered characteristics obtained during the study of specific criteria of health, allows you to set in the aggregate level of physical, mental and social opportunities of long-livers.
Almost in all selected subgroups many years the largest number of people with good health (the so-called healthy) is celebrated in Abkhazia and Belarus.
The range of variation in the percentages has a wide margin in all major subgroups of patients. Its upper border of the long-livers of male reaches 43,5, women - 34,8%, in old age - 53,1 and 40.8%, respectively (Abkhazia). Lower limit of the share of healthy men is 24.2% (90 years and older) and 43.3% (80-89 years). Women have similar rates equal to 20.2 and 33.3%.
The extreme limits of this criterion for all four subgroups are 53,1-20,2%. It is interesting to note that in some areas of the country (for example, in Abkhazia) in centenarians meet indicators specific to persons younger in areas with low levels of long-term health of the people.
As for the relative number of people with very poor health (seriously ill and old), it also varies in rather wide limits.
Thus, in Kyrgyzstan among centenarians the number of persons with poor health reaches of 21.2%- a Small number of elderly people with Low health indicators among men and women detected in Belarus (2,6%and 5.8%). The General level of health of centenarians in the Lithuanian and the Ukrainian SSR in many respects similar. In the Moldavian SSR observed average figures.
Analysis of the data on the persons referred to intermediate category "sick and weak, shows that among men-long-livers they range from 41.9 per cent (Ukraine) to 56.1 %( (Lithuania), among men age - from 41,2% (Kyrgyzstan) to 57.2% (Ukraine), among women of the same age groups respectively 46,9-61,1 and 49.9 to 58.6%.
Thus, the identified territorial differences in the health of many years people not only expressed in private its manifestations, private parties, but are quite distinct regional characteristics, developing under the influence of specific complexes of natural-economic and social-hygienic factors.
