Abstract

Self rated health is a widely used measure in behavioural epidemiological studies which is a global, informative indicator of health status and quality of life. The main goal of the present study was to examine the relationship between subjective health status of adolescents with individual, psychological protective and risk factors. The authors performed the study among youth in Szeged, Hungary in the autumn of 2010. Data collection was based on self-administered questionnaires. 656 high school students were included in the sample. Logistic regression analyses were applied to detect associations including the individual, psychological indicators as dependent variables and self perceived health as an independent variable. It was found that adolescents with better self perceived health had higher scale points of optimism and satisfaction with life, whereas lower self rated health correlated with higher values of depression and emotional aggression. There were gender differences in both protective and risk factors. Internal locus of control was a protective factor while depression, emotional aggression, and external locus of control were risk factors of psychological health among girls. Self rated health can be a possible indicator of subjective well-being that may open a way to prevention in behavioural medicine.
