This study tested the hypothesis, from North American findings, that global self-ratings of health predict survival for older Australians.
A stratified sample of Australians 60 years of age and older surveyed in 1981 was resurveyed in 1988.
Cox proportional hazard general linear models were constructed separately for men and women to predict survival over 7 years.
Better self-ratings of health had an incremental association with survival for women, but only men with poor ratings had significantly worse survival than others.
