Health Indicators in Russia
Population aging affects many spheres of human life. Because population aging depends on various observed factors called health indicators, it is necessary to study these indicators to achieve such goals as mortality reduction and life expectancy growth. The most important health indicator is availability of chronic diseases, because list of chronic diseases force people to lead a certain lifestyle and appearance of one of these diseases makes a person change their way of life. The effect increases when an individual has several chronic disease, therefore we study such a phenomenon as multimorbidity (polymorbidity). The presented study summarizes experience of foreign researchers and several Russian colleagues. Based on previous studies, we analyze the data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS-HSE) for 2017 using the Assosiation Rule Mining. As a result, frequently occurring combinations of diseases consisting of two and three diagnosable diseases were obtained.
