Lifestyle Survey 2003
The Lifestyle 2003 survey was designed to analyse the way of living of the Maltese population and highlight differences between different groups.

Personal comment.

On a population of 400,000 a sample of 500 with a 52% response rate is quite small, especially when subgroups are analysed by age and gender. For this reason I feel that the confidence interval of all data is quite wide.

However this is a very interesting indicator of lifestyle among the maltese population.

Personally, I feel that the smoking prevalence is probably underestimated, when comparing to studies with larger sampling frames.
