AbstractTo study the health status of the children and the adult members of the large families living in rural areas we surveyed 770 children and 393 their parents of 204 large families. From among surveyed families 87,7 % made traditional families, and 12,3 % made single-parent families. It was found out that: - the level of general and primary morbidity of the mothers of single-parent families in 1.1 times exceeds the level of traditional families and earlier known in 1,2 times; the rank structure of morbidity according to classes of diseases with the mothers of compared families has no differences, but essentially differs according to morbidity rate; relative weight of women from single-parent families (4,0±3,9 %), having the first group of health in 2,4 times less, than in traditional families (8,5±2,1 %), and having the third group in 1,2 times more (52,0±10,0 % and 44,0±3,7 % respectively); mothers with the first group of health have no more than three children; children of large families are ill less often than children of all set of families of the area (1171,2 and 1359,5 out of 1000 children respectively); children from single-parent families are ill essentially more often than children from traditional families (1252,7 and 1169,4 respectively).
