Abstract

The present study describes the general methodology of the Hungarian Epidemiological Panel (HEP). The HEP is a follow-up survey focused on the quality of life and the biopsychosocial causes of the development and progress of diseases of public health importance in the Hungarian population. In this article we explain the significance of the HEP, give an overview of panel surveys in Hungary and in other countries, present the methodological design, preparations, and arrangements of the survey; we explicate the development of the questionnaire, the newly introduced test battery, and the weighing process. Summarizing the results of the follow-up survey, during the second wave survey and the additional search we found 91.5 percent of the panel sample (7321 persons), 4524 of them participated in the next wave of the survey. The estimated mortality rate was 4.3 percent bet ween the two waves of the survey; the refusal rate was 23.7 percent, slightly higher than in the Hungarostudy 2002. The weighing process ensured that the sample was representative by age, gender, and region of settlement. Based on the survey data, research conclusions can be drawn regarding the whole Hungarian adult population. The results make it possible to analyze the prognosis of diseases, and to expose causal relationships between the health condition and social, economic, and psychological factors.
