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 random sample of the population of mainland France: 25,319 individuals aged 18 to 75 years took part in the 2017 edition. Conducted from January 2017 to August 2017, this survey was the most recent in a series of seven, entitled "Adult health barometers", conducted in 1992, 1993, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2014. 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 questions the use of tobacco, alcohol, cannabis and other psychoactive substances..
