Single women in Seoul smoke three times more than the average, and seven out of 10 drink alcohol regularly. Since single women tend to pay less attention to their health, three out of 10 of them assessed their health as "bad" and 40.6 percent they do little to take care of their health even though they are worried about it.

The figures come from a survey released Monday by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul Foundation of Women and Family of 550 women between 25 and 49 who live alone.

Some 22.7 percent of the respondents smoke, more than three times the 7.2 percent of women nationwide. Also, 69.6 percent said they drink alcohol, with 24.3 percent saying they drink at least nine times per month.

Just 54 percent of single women went to hospital for treatment for women's illnesses, with cost being the main hindrance. Seoul has a high percentage of single women who live alone, accounting for about 10 percent of the city's population.
