Einleitung European health statistics measure both objective and subjective aspects of population's health. They cover different kinds of health-related issues in different sides of everybody's life, including key indicators on the functioning of the health care systems. These aspects include: Public health Health status: self-reported health and morbidity, functional and activity limitations, injuries Health determinants: overweight and obesity, physical activity, dietary habits, risky behaviours such as tobacco and alcohol consumption Health care: health care expenditure, health care resources (staff and facilities) and activities (hospital and ambulatory services) Morbidity: diagnosis-specific morbidity (prevalence and incidence rates for defined diseases). This domain is under development.
The Age of Unreason (1989), by Charles Handy - The 25 Most Influential Business Management Books Handy's 1989 book made a powerful case for what might then have been called, without irony, outside-the-box business thinking. Handy, then a visiting professor at the London Business School, described dramatic social changes going on in everyday life and in the workplace. New technologies and the decrease of full-time positions, among other transformations, requires abandoning the established rules and experimenting with new ways of working with one another. Handy's book only grew in stature in the decades after its publication as the rise of the Internet, ubiquitous communication, increased outsourcing, and the explosion of social media proved his vision to be amazingly prescient.
Local Administrative Units (LAU) To meet the demand for statistics at local level, Eurostat has set up a system of Local Administrative Units (LAUs) compatible with NUTS. At the local level, two levels of Local Administrative Units (LAU) have been defined: The upper LAU level (LAU level 1, formerly NUTS level 4) is defined for most, but not all of the countries. The lower LAU level (LAU level 2, formerly NUTS level 5) consists of municipalities or equivalent units in the 27 EU Member States. Since there are frequent changes to the LAUs, Eurostat follows up its development from year to year. The NUTS regulation makes provision for EU Member States to send exhaustive lists of their Local Administrative Units to Eurostat.
Stats & Figures Hearing Loss and Tinnitus in America As of 2010, approximately 36 million Americans have hearing loss.

Of those, 16 million have sought medical attention for their tinnitus. 2 An estimated one in five American teens suffers from the same degree of hearing loss found in older adults age 50-60. 3 An estimated one in five highschoolers suffer from ringing in the ears (tinnitus). 4 Hearing loss, which is the third most common chronic condition in older adults after arthritis and heart disease, represents a pressing national public health issue. 5 More than 30 million Americans are exposed to dangerous levels of noise in their workplaces and an additional nine million are exposed to ototoxic chemicals. 6

History of NUTS At the beginning of the 1970s, Eurostat set up the NUTS classification as a single, coherent system for dividing up the EU's territory in order to produce regional statistics for the Community. For around thirty years, implementation and updating of the NUTS classification was managed under a series of "gentlemen's agreements" between the Member States and Eurostat. Work on the Commission Regulation (EC) No 1059/2003, to give NUTS a legal status started in spring 2000. This was adopted in May 2003 and entered into force in July 2003.
