The European Health Survey in Spain (EHSS) is a research addressed to all people aged 15 and over who reside in family dwellings throughout the national territory. Its main objective is to collect data on health status, the use of health services and health determinants, harmonized and comparable at a European level.
Its frequency is every five years, alternating every two and a half years with the National Health Survey, with which it shares a set of harmonised variables. In the survey conducted in 2014, approximately 23,000 homes were investigated distributed among 2,500 census sections.
The European Health Survey in Spain (EHSS) is a research operation that the INE carries out based on a partnership agreement with the Ministry of Public Health, Social Services and Equality to expand variables.
