Abstract

The authors investigated socioeconomic factors associated with prevalent gynecologic diseases in data provided by participants in Women’s Health and Health Education Study Program. In 1997, 1515 Zhejiang married rural women aged 15–49 years completed health questionnaires given them by trained medical students who interviewed them at their homes. Single factor and multiple factors analysis were used to determine the relationship between socioeconomic factors and gynecologic morbidity. The data obtained in this study showed that the gynecologic morbidity of the studied married rural women had certain relationship to age, abortion times postnatal consultation visits and other socioeconomic factors. The finding would be helpful for understanding the current reproductive health of married rural women and preventing gynecologic diseases by controlling the risk factors.
