dc.description.abstractOsteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease associated with increased bone fragility, which correspondingly leads to increased bone fractures. In the GEDA 2014/2015-EHIS survey, 7.8% of women and 2.0% of men aged 18 and over reported suffering from osteoporosis during the past 12 months. The share of people reporting osteoporosis increases considerably in the age group 65 and over. Elder women significantly more often report osteoporosis than men. As this was the first time the present indicator for the 12-month prevalence of osteoporosis was evaluated in the context of the European Health Interview Survey (EHIS) 2014/2015, there is no comparative data available.eng
