Self-rated health refers to the perception of a person's health in general, either by the person himself or herself, or, in the case of proxy response, by the person responding. Health means not only the absence of disease or injury but also physical, mental and social well being.
This table is based on the set of respondents who have provided a response in each cycle of the National Population Health Survey since 1994/1995. This longitudinal survey involves surveying the same group of people every two years. The results of this table show changes and not a snapshot at a point in time.
1. Household population aged 12 and older who reported on self-rated health by rating their health as "excellent", "very good", "good”, “fair” or “poor”.
2. Population and age are based on the first survey cycle in 1994/1995.
