Abstract: The aim of this study was to analyze the prevalence of poor self-rated health according to socio-demographic variables and the presence of chronic diseases in the populations of Brazil and Portugal. A total of 13,894 individuals ≥ 30 years of age were studied in capitals in Northeast Brazil (VIGITEL 2011) and 20,579 in Portugal (4th NHI, 2005/2006). Poisson regression was used in both analyses of associations, adjusted by covariates. Net prevalence rates of poor health in men in Northeast Brazil and Portugal w… Show more

“…On the other hand, men tend to self-evaluate their health as poor only in the presence of some disease. 16 In a study carried out by Carvalho et al, 20 the prevalence of self-assessed poor health was significantly higher among individuals with lower educational level, those with chronic disease (hypertension, diabetes or obesity) and women, both in northeastern Brazil and in Portugal.…”

“…Na última década, muitas áreas de investigação em ciências sociais e epidemiologia têm buscado refinar a pesquisa dos determinantes sociais e individuais da autoavaliação de saúde (Barros et al, 2009;Cai et al, 2017;Cau et al, 2016; Chireh e D'Arcy, 2018; Garcia et al, 2010;Lodin et al, 2017;Mascarenhas et al, 2017;Ou et al, 2018;Santos et al, 2007). Entre os determinantes individuais, é possível dizer, com base na literatura, que as pessoas, conforme envelhecem, tendem a classificar pior a sua saúde, ou seja, quanto mais se avança para faixas etárias maiores, mais o estado geral de saúde diminui e, consequentemente, a autoavaliação de saúde decai (Andrade e Mehta, 2018;Barros et al, 2009;Cai et al, 2017;Carvalho et al, 2015;Cau et al, 2016;Chireh e D'Arcy, 2018 Os achados em relação à autoavaliação em saúde e sexo indicam que mulheres tendem a avaliar sua saúde como ruimcomparativamente pior que a dos homens (Andrade e Mehta, 2018;Barros et al, 2009;Cai et al, 2017;Cau et al, 2016;Chireh e D'Arcy, 2018;Hosseinpoor et al, 2012;Sundaram, 2004 (Hosseinpoor et al, 2012).…”

“…Está bem estabelecida, também, a relação entre a autoavaliação do estado de saúde e os fatores de escolaridade e renda. Os estudos demonstram uma autoavaliação de saúde mais negativa nos indivíduos com menor escolaridade e menor renda (Andrade e Mehta, 2018;Barros et al, 2009;Cai et al, 2017;Carvalho et al, 2015;Chireh e D'Arcy, 2018 Ainda sobre aspectos individuais, os hábitos relacionados ao estilo de vida também têm sido relacionados à autoavaliação de saúde (Barros et al, 2009;Cai et al, 2017;Cau et al, 2016;Hansen et al, 2015;Ou et al, 2018;Pavão et al, 2013).…”
