  1. Fulltext. Some correlates of self-rated health for Australian women.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study aimed to identify some of the correlates of self-rated health for young to middle-aged Australian women.

    Methods

    Regression analyses were based on a 4-year longitudinal study using a random sample of Sydney women 20 to 59 years of age at baseline.

    Participants were interviewed in 1986/87 and 1990.

    Results

    Cross-sectional relationships between self-assessed health and other health measures varied significantly by age, although physical health was a common correlate.

    Sixty-three percent of participants reported a similar rating of health over the 4-year period between the surveys.

    Changes in self-assessed health were sensitive to chronic disease.

    Also, participants'selfratings of health were related to their subsequent chronic disease status.

    Conclusions

    Self-rated health reflects a complex process of internalized calculations that encompass both lived experience and knowledge of disease causes and consequences.

    Women seem to take into consideration a broad range of factors, including lifestyle, vitality, mental attitude, and age, and, if they have a health condition, the chronicity of their disease, duration since diagnosis, and treatment.
