  • Abstract

    Knowledge and conduct in the area of health as well as problems of health education of children from the view of their parents. Topics: The content of this survey is largely identical to the teachers survey. Differing from the teachers survey in the introductory question formulations for the respective scales the relation to one´s own child was established. The following additional question was posed: illnesses of the child up to now. The judgement on the questionnaire in the teachers survey was replaced here by a judgement on the respondent by the interviewer. Demography: age; sex; school year; number of children; school education; occupation; household income; state. Interviewer rating: willingness of respondent to cooperate and his mood at conclusion of the interview; social class of respondent; length of interview.
