    Date 2018-10-22

    This is the result of a biennial review of the health screening rates by sex from 2008 to 2016 by the National Health screening Statistical Yearbook published by the National Health Insurance Service. The Health Screening Check Rate, which means the percentage of check-ups among the eligible persons, has steadily increased for both men and women. By 2016, 74.4% of the women and 75.8% of the men were found to have received health screening, that about three out of four health screening candidates were found to have received the service.

     

    Looking at the change in the health screening check-up rate, in 2008 for women it was 59.3% and in 2010, it was 64.9% which was 5.6%p increase from 2008. And in 2017, it was 71.2% which exceeded 70% for the first time. In 2016, the heath screening check rate was 74.4%, a 15.1%p increase over 2008. Men also has a steady increase in the health screening check-rate. In 2008, the health screening check rate for males was 63.5%, and in 2012, it exceeded 70% (71.4%). Since then, it has increased steadily, and by 2016, more than three out of four health screening participants received health screening, which is 75.8%. Looking at the changes in health screening check rate, in the case of women, it increased by 5.6% p from 59.3% in 2008 to 64.9% in 2010. In 2014, it increased to 71.2% which exceeded 70%. In 2016, the health screening check rate was 74.4%, a 15.1%p increase over 2008. Men also saw a steady increase in the health screening check rate. In 2008, the health screening check rate for males was 63.5%, and in 2012, it exceeded 70% (71.4%). Since then, it has increased steadily, and by 2016, more than three out of four male health screening participants received health screening, which is 75.8%.

     

    On the other hand, as the health screening check rate of women increases relatively steeply, the gap between the health screening check rates of women and men became steadily decreased. The gap in gender-specific health screening check rates decreased from 4.2% p in 2008 to 2.4% p in 2010. And a 2.1% p gap in 2012 and 2014, respectively. In 2016, the gap was narrowed to 1.4% p.
