Abstract

DELGADO CRUZ, Amarily; NARANJO FERREGUT, Jorge A.; CAMEJO MACIAS, Mabel  and  FORCELLEDO LLANO, Carmen R.. Análisis de la estructura, el ciclo vital y las crisis de las familias de una comunidad. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2002, vol.18, n.4, pp.254-256. ISSN 0864-2125.

A descriptive and cross-sectional research was made among 131 families from the family physician's office 272 corresponding to "Turcios Lima" Polyclinic, in 1998, aimed at analyzing some their characteristics. Data were obtained by reviewing the family medical histories. The percentage method and the Chi square test were used for the statistical analysis with 95 % of reliability. The nuclear families proved to be the most frequent with 60.3 % and the extension phase predominated in the vital cycle with 48.1 %. The transitory crises appeared in 70 families and the non-transitory in 24 households. No relation was found between the crises and the family structure.

Keywords : FAMILY CHARACTERISTICS; COMMUNITY MEDICINE; COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH CARE; FAMILY RELATIONS; NUCLEAR FAMILY; SOCIAL PROBLEMS.
