Children's sickness rate


Children’s sickness rate can be monitored based on the frequency of children’s visits to the doctor due to an illness (i.e., preventive checkups and vaccinations do not count).
The chart below shows how many times a child of a given age has been to the doctor. For example, an average 15-year-old teenager has seen a doctor more than 70 times due to an illness.

  1. Analyses
    Analyses can be performed for various members of the family, i.e. for the followed-up child, his mother, father, or both parents. If an analysis is unavailable for a family member, his/her button is grey (unlike the coloured buttons of other members of the family).
     
  2. Sorting
    Analyses can be sorted according to 4 basic parameters
    • Gender of the child followed-up in the ELSPAC study:
      • boy
      • girl
    • Birth order of the child followed-up in the ELSPAC study:
      • first-born child
      • next-born child
    • Birth complications at birth of the followed-up child:
      • birth without complications
      • birth with complications
    • Mother’s age (Father’s age):
      • born in the period 1971-76: parents who were less than 20 years old at the time of birth of the followed-up child
      • born in the period 1961-72: parents who were between 20 and 30 years old at the time of birth of the followed-up child
      • born in the period 1947-62: parents who were more than 30 years old at the time of birth of the followed-up child
         

    Only one sorting parameter can be selected at a time.
    Sorting parameters marked in grey cannot be used for a given type of analysis.
     

  3. Charts
    All charts are interactive. In bar charts, numerical values can be displayed by moving the mouse cursor over the individual bars. In line charts, the numerical value at a given point on the horizontal axis can be displayed by moving the mouse cursor over a line above that point.
