Associação entre fatores contextuais e auto-avaliação de saúde: uma revisão sistemática de estudos multinível

Abstract: The influence of residential characteristics on self-rated health has received little research attention, especially in Brazil. This study summarizes the available evidence on the association between contextual factors and self-rated health, using a systematic review of articles published from January 1995 to August 2005.
