The Serbia National Health Survey 2013 aimed to obtain a description of the health status of the Serbian population at the regional, and national levels for year 2013. However, the regions of Kosovo and Metohija were excluded from data collection. The survey collected data through interviews, anthropometric measurements, and blood exams for children age 7-14 and adults 15 and older. A household, a face-to-face, and a self-administered questionnaire were utilized to collect data on socioeconomic health determinants, lifestyle, health status, and utilization of health care. The Eurostat Health Survey- National Representative Probability Sample was used to select the survey sample. The Eurostat Health Interview Survey methodology was followed to facilitate the comparison of results with those of other countries in the region. This is the third round of the survey in Serbia.
