Abstract

Two nationwide surveys were conducted in the German Federal Republic. An incidence of 0.54% and a prevalence of 4% were registered. The ratio of men to women for incidence was 2:1 and for prevalence 1:1. Stone prevalence increased from 1.28% to 6.79% with increasing age. The occupational groups mostly affected were pensioners (34.3%), housewives (23.5%) and employees (16.9%). In cities the prevalence rate was higher than in rural areas. In recent years the mortality rate has decreased.
