The group's aim is to generate knowledge about physical activity, performance, and other lifestyle habits in the Swedish working population based on an extensive, existing database of health profile assessments.
A health profile assessment provides information on physical activity, lifestyle habits, various health experiences, different body measurements, blood pressure, and fitness.
Health profile assessment is an interdisciplinary method used to develop employees' health at workplaces around Sweden. Since 1976, HPI has developed the technique of health profile assessments and trained health profile assessors to carry them out.
In 2022, close to one million health profile assessments carried out since 1987 will be available in the central database, approximately 46 percent of which are women. The database continues to grow, but about 30,000 new tests are completed each year.
