We present results of simple urinalysis examinations (dipstick) in a large (approximately 21,000 people) working population. In about 10% of the screened individuals at least one abnormality was found. In men the most common finding was proteinuria (4.9%). Hematuria was found in 2.6% and glycosuria in 0.6%. The most prevalent finding in women was hematuria (8.1%), followed by proteinuria (3.9%) and glycosuria (0.6%). Only about 1% of the examinees had two or more abnormalities in their urine examinations. These findings attest to the utility and practicability of incorporating urine testing into various screening and clinical examinations.
