Health Barometer

Since the early 90s, the INPES (French National Institute for Prevention and Health Education), has been conducting, in cooperation with many institutions, a series of surveys which examine the various behaviours and attitudes that the French have regarding health. The health barometer is a telephone health survey of a representative sample of the population of mainland France: nearly 15,700 individuals aged 15 to 85 years took part in the 2014 edition. Conducted from 11 December 2013 to 31 May 2014, this survey was the most recent in a series of five, entitled, "Adult health barometers", conducted in 1992, 1993, 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010. The survey collects information on various health behaviours and attitudes among French people (such as those pertaining to the use of treatments, depression, vaccination, screening practices, physical activity, violence and sexuality). The survey also broaches the subject of legal and illegal drug use using a specific questionnaire designed in partnership with the OFDT, which exploits the data in cooperation with the INPES.
