Objectives: Objectives of the study were to a) probe and characterize health beliefs, utilization of health care resources, medical care seeking behaviors, and preventive health behaviors of Chinese women; b) identify the correlation between demographic backgrounds of Chinese women and their health beliefs plus health-promoting behaviors. Design: The survey study was to explore the health-promoting behaviors of Chinese women through understanding of their health beliefs and health behaviors. Sample: 304 Chinese women were selected by stratified convenience sampling from August 1999 to December 2000. Variables studied: Variables of the study included demographic variables, health beliefs and health-promoting behaviors. Methods: Questionnaires were sent with consent. Participation was voluntary. A total of 700 questionnaires were sent, 422 returned with a response rate of 60.28%. Findings: Our findings included that a) Chinese women's health beliefs lean towards internal health locus of control; b) Chinese health promoting behaviors are specific; c) Chinese women's health beliefs and preventive health behaviors are correlated with age, educational level and marital status, and shown a 24.7% predicting power in internal locus of control and 28.7% in chance locus of control. Conclusions and Implications: Findings in this study will help the promotion of health care services for Chinese women and provide some feedback to health authorities in the formulation of national health policies.
