Rate Your General Health

This short form (36 questions) is a typical general health survey used in health research: http://www.rand.org/health/surveys_tools/mos/mos_core_36item_survey.html By answering each question honestly, you'll have a good idea of how healthy you are right now (no answers or interpretations of your scores are provided). Your responses to the first 2 questions are an excellent guide used worldwide by healthcare providers and public health researchers to rate your health!

Rate Your General Health Challenge rules

  1. Complete the 11 sections of this Short Form (36 items) General Health Status Questionnaire as honestly as you can--your first response is usually the most accurate so don't agonize over each item.
  2. Use your responses as a general guideline to assess your own general health status right now. What do you think you need to do to improve your health?
  3. Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.

“What a POINTLESS exercise that was! The challenge is to 'rate' your general health so what is the point of a health survey or assessment that fails to do this? There isn't even a simple tally system (tally your scores and if you fall within range x you are y), so save yourselves the bother folks.”

It looks like that tho, is it how its supposed to look?

Yep, that is what I see. Looks like you are suppose to print it out and answer. There is no answer key provided, so you interpret your own results. I saw a better one somewhere that calculates your BMI score automatically.

Dwight W Rate Your General Health Challenge

Contributorgold Dwight W Here's what I was able to pull, hope it helps those having trouble. Just not sure if this is going to work.

Well, that didn't work. If you look under the guides you can get one from the RAND link the Barbara provided.

Hannah S and Alan C encouraged this.

Kirstin M Rate Your General Health Challenge

This seems to be a great way to judge how you are doing, simple but very effective, as with all surveys, you must answer honestly.  Although how silly if you tried to fake this, you are playing with your health and ultimately your life
