TRAEBERT, Jefferson; BORTOLUZZI, Marcelo Carlos  e  KEHRIG, Ruth Terezinha. Self-rated health conditions of the adult population, Southern Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.4, pp.789-793.  Epub 10-Jun-2011. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102011005000036.

The study aimed to estimate how the adult population (20 to 59 years) of Joaçaba, Southern Brazil, rates its health status. A cross-sectional study involving a representative sample (n=707) was carried out in 2006. The questionnaire surveyed sociodemographic conditions, restriction on daily activities, medical consultation, hospitalization and self-rated health. A hierarchical multiple logistic regression analysis was performed. It was verified that 74.7% of the individuals perceived their health as good and 3.9% perceived it as poor/very poor. Being unemployed at the moment of the interview and ceasing to perform daily activities due to health problems significantly increased the chance of poor /very poor self-rated health.

Palavras-chave : Adult Health; Self-Assessment; Activities of Daily Living; Socioeconomic Factors; Cross-Sectional Studies.
