Abstract

Relying on the statistical data for the Yaroslavl region, the authors identified three groups of diseases that are most common in children and teenagers. These include diseases of the digestive system, respiratory system, and circulatory system. Using Bayes methodology, the authors conducted a comprehensive assessment of the risk of morbidity for each of these three groups. Based on the results obtained, strong, medium, and weak risk factors leading to diseases of the study groups were identified. Among the factors that are of primary importance for the occurrence of diseases, the most common are: lack of well-being in the family, features of pregnancy and childbirth, levels personal anxiety of children and teenagers, degrees of physical activity, as well as the presence of viral and infectious diseases during pregnancy and first years of the newborn baby. Also, the authors described a socio-pedagogical approach for conducting a comprehensive assessment of the influence of factors on the level of morbidity of schoolchildren. The method for determining the “weight” of each factor measured the strength of its influence on the level of morbidity. The specific gravity of each of them in the integrated risk of morbidity is shown. Based on the study, the authors formulated conclusions and recommendations for carrying out preventive measures with children and teenagers.
