Self rated health trends for older females

This project compared the longitudinal trajectories of three commonly used self-reported measures of health:

  • global
  • age-comparative
  • self-comparative self-rated health (SRH).

The figure represents prototypical predicted global trajectories of the three SRH measures for a 78 year old female over a 12 year period.

For older females global SRH is likely to become poorer over time, age-comparative SRH remains relatively stable and self-comparative SRH improves over time.
