Resumé

Background: ‘Music and public health’ is a new field of study. Few scientific studies with small samples have documented health implications of musical participation. Research questions in this epidemiological study were: 1) Is there an association between self-rated health and active use of music in daily life? 2) What associations can be observed between musical background, uses and understanding of music as a health factor, and self-reported health?
Method: Data came from the Danish Health and Morbidity Survey 2013, based on a simple random sample of 25.000 adult Danes (16+ years). Response rate: 57%. Multiple logistic regression analyses were performed to investigate associations between musical background/activities and health-related indicators.
Discussion: The study documents that a majority of informants use music to regulate physical and psychological states/processes and that they consider music a health promoting factor. The study indirectly points at the public health potential of musicking.
Conclusions: A clear association between daily playing/singing and health/quality of life was found. Results indicate awareness among Danes that musicking may play an important role as a health-promoting activity.
