  1. Self-assessment of health status and mortality in middle-aged British men.

    Article - En anglais

    In a prospective study of 7725 middle-aged Britisth men, 357 of whom died in an average follow-up period of four years, self-assessment of health status was strongly associated with mortality.

    Men who reported poor health had an eight-fold increase in total mortality compared with those reporting excellent health.

    Those perceiving fair or poor health were older, more likely to be manual workers and cigarette smokers, more likely to be thin and to be heavy drinkers or to have given up drinking in the past five years.
