Abstract. The aim of the study is to estimate prevalence of behavioural risk factors for development of noncommunicable diseases in adults constituting the catchment area of adult polyclinics in Ryazan with the aim of setting priorities for prevention.

Methods and data. The study used the specially designed questionnaire in line with the methodological guidelines. Sample of 1844 respondents is representative in terms of demographic characteristics (gender, age and catchment area of a particular polyclinic).

Results. Average prevalence of tobacco smoking among respondents was 29.0% including 58.1% in males and 15.0% in females. The majority of smokers were characterized by high addiction to nicotine with 29.0% of female respondents and 43.7% of male respondents being not motivated to stop smoking.

Analysis of daily consumption of fruit and vegetables showed that nutrition patterns remain mostly irrational: only 12.8% of respondents mentioned sufficient daily consumption of fruit and vegetables; 87.4% of women and 86.79% of men reported insufficient daily intake of fruit and vegetables.

Body weight is the cumulative indicator of adequate nutrition and physical activity: 57.3% of males and 62.6% of females need medical consultation for overweight or obesity.
