7 April: World Health Day-Almost three-quarters of people aged 25 to 64 in the EU feel healthy-Education level plays a role
Of all persons aged 25 to 64 living in the European Union (EU), around three-quarters perceived their health status as very good or good, slightly fewer than 20% as fair and below 7% as bad or very bad. Being an important socio-economic factor, the education level has an influence on health status: while just over 60% of the EU population aged 25-64 with a low education level perceived their health as very good or good, this proportion hit 85% for those with a tertiary education level. This pattern is observed for all ages between 25 and 64.
