Migraine and tension-type headache in Germany. Prevalence and disease severity from the BURDEN 2020 Burden of Disease Study

Special Issue S6/2020 gives an overview of headache disorders in Germany. It focuses on the frequency and disease severity of migraine and tension-type headache.

In addition, the issue analyses the social determinants of headache disorders and examines the utilisation of outpatient medical services and the use of medication by people with headache disorders.

The data is based on a nationwide cross-sectional telephone survey of headache, back and neck pain, which was developed by the Robert Koch Institute and conducted between October 2019 and March 2020 as part of the project ‘BURDEN 2020 – The burden of disease in Germany at the national and regional level’.
