HEALTH IN THE SYSTEM OF VALUES OF THE POPULATION OF THE SURVEILLANCE ZONES NUCLEAR POWER PLANTSS

Objective: to determine the place of health in the system of values of the population of the surveillance zone (SZ) of nuclear power plants (NPPs) and its importance in the perception of emergency risks (ER).
Materials and methods. To determine the place of health in the value system, a survey of the able-bodied population of satellite cities of Rivne (RNPP) and South Ukrainian (SUNPP) nuclear power plants was conducted using nonrepetitive sampling, where the sampling error does not exceed 7,0 %. The motivational and behavioral component that determined health in the individual hierarchy of values of the subject according to the questionnaire Berezovskaya R. A. was studied. Statistical and mathematical methods were used in the research process.
Results. The array of respondents was conditionally divided into 4 groups according to their attitude to human health. And the group where a persons life position is focused exclusively on health is the most common 77,0 %. Group IV, which wants to live without limiting itself, is 8,1 %. The component integrity of values-goals and valuesmeans among the urban population of the SZ of both nuclear power plants is the same: the main goal in life is health, happy family life, and as a means perseverance, diligence and health. Goal values in groups I and IV have some differences: in the first group of respondents the main goal in life is health, and in the fourth, where a persons life guidelines exclude any restrictions a happy family life. Values for these populations have some differences, but in both groups health appears to be the main means to an end. There is a close correlation between the core of terminal values and the average indicators of the state of concern about the risk of emergencies.
Conclusions. Identified hierarchy of values: a group of stable dominant values; average status values; group of least significant values. The values of the highest status among the values-goals are health, happy family life and interesting work. Most respondents plan to achieve them through values such as health, perseverance and hard work. There is a close correlation between the core of terminal values and the average indicators of the state of concern about the risk of emergencies.
Key words: health, values, population, NPP surveillance zone, perception of emergency risks.
