Abstract

The present study showed that 49.5% of the respondents rated their health at least as good and 50.5% as less than good. No significant difference was found in self-perceived health between men and women. Women rated their health as very good more frequently than men but as very poor less frequently than men. Overall, the overwhelming majority of the respondents had secondary education, were employed, married or cohabiting, and their nationality was Estonians. Compared to women more men had basic education and fewer had higher education. Economic well-being was rated as good by over half of the respondents and as poor by almost half of them. In adjusted logistic regression analysis, lower than good self-rated health was associated with lower education, unemployment, lower economic well-being and older age group for both genders. No relationship was found between self-perceived health and marital status, ethnicity, and type of residence.
