Indicator Report - Health Status: Physical Health Past 30 Days
Why Is This Important?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.
Data NotesAge adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population based on 3 age groups: 18-34, 35-49, and 50+.
*Use caution in interpreting, the estimate for Pacific Islander has a coefficient of variation >30% and is therefore deemed unreliable by Utah Department of Health standards.
