Self-perceived health [EU-SILC survey]

Every year EU-SILC survey includes questions on respondents` self-perceived health. Respondents give answers on:

  • "How is your health in general?"
  • "Do you have any longstanding illness or longstanding health problem?"
  • "For at least the past 6 months, to what extent have you been limited because of a health problem in activities people usually do?"
  • "Was there any occasion during the last 12 months, when you needed a medical examination or treatment (except dentist)? What was the main reason for not having medical examination or treatment (except dental)?"
  • "Was there any time during the past 12 months when you really needed dental examination or treatment? What was the main reason for not having medical examination or treatment?"
