General physical health status is the culmination of all the things that affect a person's health. A person may have had poor
health because of an injury, an acute infection such as a cold or flu, or a chronic health problem. This measure can be used
to identify health disparities, track population trends, plan public health programs, and measure progress toward several
Healthy People 2020 goals.
