Rare diseases affect a small number of people in relation to the general population. A disease is characterized rare if it has prevalence less than 5/10,000 residents. The non-governmental organization Eurordis (Europe Rare Diseases) represents groups of people with rare diseases from 44 different countries. Also, more than 1,000 rare diseases are represented in order to be promoted as a public health priority at european level. In 2009, the results of research EurordisCare3 were published. This research aimed to record the experience of patients from different European countries. The purpose of this study is to examine the syndrome Williams in which the relationship between key factors and dependent variables through appropriate models for ordinal variables was studied. As part of this thesis, descriptive statistics will be presented for the available variables and tests will be done on the dependence of categorical variables. Also, logistic regression will be used in order to create models so as to study the factors which influence a visit to a doctor.
