Abstract

Background: There is a need for an instrument to record a life-course perspective of self-rated health. Aim: To test the "health-line". a simple, comprehensive method of collecting data on self-rated health over time. Method: In 1996, a questionnaire was mailed to people who in 1985 were aged between 25 and 34 years old and had a sick-leave spell > 28 days with "back diagnoses". They were asked to rate their global health graphically with a "health-line" for the years 1985-95. Official data on sick leave and disabilitypension were obtained for the same period. In all, 37 out of 52 men and 60out of 83 women answered: that is, they drew a health-line. Result: A statistically significant negative correlation between the mean number of absence days due to ill health and the health-line data was found for every year(r=-0.35 to -0.53; p <0.001) and for the whole period 1985-95 (r=-0.546, p<0.001) respectively. Conclusion: The method worked well and is well worthfurther development and testing.
