Self-assessed health among Norwegian adults.
Previous reseanch has used self-assessed health as a proxy for « objective » health rating as an important element in sick role behaviour, as well as a predictor of life satisfaction and mortality.
However, several authors have suggested that self-evaluations of health are not only reflections of the underlying medical condition.
It has been claimed that personal and social background characteristics such as sex, age, race, and occupational status contribute independently to subjectively appraised health.
