Health Status can be measured in a variety of ways, including rates of mortality from various causes, incidence or prevalence of disease and disability, utilization of health care, and self-reports from individuals. Each method has strengths and weaknesses on a variety of dimensions, such as how well it represents the
actual current health status of a population, whether it can be applied at the individual level, whether it focuses on the health of individuals in a health care system versus the system itself, and how easy it is to produce and analyze.
The survey included a variety of measures of health status, including disease prevalence, disability, behavioral risk factors, health care utilization, and perceived general health status.
