Health status and health practice : Alameda and Beyond.
Using the population of St John's, Newfoundland, we did a constructive replication of previous studies testing the assocation between health practices and health status.
A telephone questionnaire was applied to all adults in a probabilistic sample of households.
Several health practices and preventive behaviours indexes were developed and tested.
An additive index of six practices (breakfast, sleeping, drinking, smoking, weight, and exercise) using the Alameda County definitions, and an additive score of five practices (excluding breakfast and with revised definitions for smoking, drinking and exercise) were analysed using log-linear models.
