Age-Adjusted Self-Reported General Health Assessment: Poor

Region: Hudson Valley
This indicator shows the percentage of adults who answered poor to: "How is your general health?"
Why is this important?
People's subjective assessment of their health status is important because when people feel healthy they are more likely to feel happy and to participate in their community socially and economically. Areas with unhealthy populations lose productivity due to lost work time. Healthy residents are essential for creating a vibrant and successful community. Moreover, self-reported health assessments have been shown to be predictors of mortality and can be valuable for population health monitoring.
