Self-rated health (SRH) has been collected for many years on National Center for Health Statistics surveys and since 1993
on the state-based BRFSS. SRH is an independent predictor of important health outcomes including mortality, morbidity, and
functional status. It is considered to be a reliable indicator of a person's perceived health and is a good global assessment
of a person's well being.
