The purpose of the research was to determine the prevalence of migraine and recurrent headaches in students.

Five hundred ninety-five students of University of Ljubljana and University of Maribor with an average age of 19,7 years and standard deviation of 1,70 filled in the UCSD Migraine Questionnaire based on the International Headache Society diagnostic criteria for migraine. The completion of the questionnaire took place in groups in faculties.

The prevalence of migraine is 8,1%, 2,9% in men and 10,2% in women. The prevalence of migrainous disorder is 8,7%, 6,9% in men and 9,5% in women. 19,3% of subjects (13,9% male and 21,6% female) suffers from recurrent non-migrainous headaches. In all the cases except in migrainous disorder the prevalence is significantly higher in women.

Only 21,7% of subject that fulfil all the criteria for migraine and 13,5% of subjects that fulfil the criteria for migrainous disorder think that they have migraine.
