Survey: one in four Germans "chronically ill":
This article was originally published in Clinica
Every fourth adult in Germany is chronically ill, if the results of a recent telephone poll are extrapolated nationally. Allianz private sickness insurance commissioned the "tns emnid" opinion survey group in winter 2004-05 to ask 1,000 people to self-diagnose their state of health: 25% of all respondents said they were chronically ill, with half of the over 60s responding as such; 7% were acutely ill, and 2% were suffering from trauma or injury.
