Population of eastern Croatia
Descriptive statistics (expressed with absolute numbers of patients and percentages) were used to analyse the presence/absence of symptoms and complications, depending on the type of diagnosis. Differences among the categories were assessed by using Fisher exact tests. The duration of the symptoms prior to the first medical check up (in months) was analysed by using the nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test. Distributions of phenotypes, particularly for UC and CD, were represented graphically, as columns of percentages. The extent of CD, according to the Montreal’s classification three stages per each of three categories: age at time of diagnosis, location and behaviour, was represented by using descriptive statistics (absolute numbers of patients and percentages), while differences among categories were analysed.
