HSTATYR reports responses to the question, "Compared with 12 months ago, would you say that [your/sample child's] health is better, worse, or about the same?"

Rating of the individual's current state of health on a four-point (1972-81) or five-point scale (1982 forward) --based on self-evaluation or evaluation by a family member--is reported in HEALTH.


Other than changes to the universe, there are no comparability issues.
