Nowadays, more and more frequently the importance of personal
choices is emphasized with regard to health condition and the risk of developing
certain illnesses. This means that it is necessary to implement educational
and preventive strategies. The starting point for such activities should constitute
a diagnosis of health behaviours of various groups of people, based on
reliable research tools. Our research has been carried out on a group of 345
randomly selected inhabitants of the Silesian Voivodeship. The Inventory of
Health Behaviours of Z. Juczyński has been used. The results obtained have
been compared with normalization results in the field of descriptive statistics.
Positional statistics and correlation coefficients have also been analyzed.
Taking into account the data obtained, practical recommendations have been
made in terms of planning and implementing educational strategies among
the inhabitants of the Silesian Voivodeship.
