Summary 

The Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factor Survey 2002 collected information on risks factors among residents ages 25-64. The initial sample consisted of 3,020 individuals that were randomly selected after a three-stage sampling methodology. Survey respondents were administered a questionnaire, and physical examinations to collect information on blood pressure, pulse, and body measurements. Topics covered in the questionnaire include health care utilization, health-related behavior, food habits, and physical activity. The data collection followed the recommendations of the WHO MONICA project. The survey aimed to serve as a foundation for the development of a health monitoring system in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
