As for the previous surveys, the purpose of the Health Survey carried out in 2002-2003 (or the Ten-Year Health Survey) was to:
- Describe the population's health status: declared morbidity and perceived health;
- Provide quantitative information about the use of care facilities and prevention services (in volume and value);
- Allow an analysis of health status, use of care facilities and prevention, with regard to the socio-demographic characteristics (age, gender, profession, etc.) of individuals and their households.

The first Health Survey was conducted in 1960-1961. The following surveys took place in 1970-1971, and again in 1980-1981 and 1991-1992.

The last survey in 2002-2003, while continuing to provide comparisons with previous surveys, was more consistent with other European surveys, especially with regard to its health module which was significantly more detailed than in previous surveys.

The 2002-2003 Health Survey also contained several "self-questionnaires" (questionnaires completed by the individuals themselves, which are widely used on an international level and focus on perceived health, past and current working conditions and the description of a certain number of pathologies.
