Self-Reported Health Status


We continue not to feel as well as do residents of benchmark regions, based upon response to the question “How is your general health?” We do not know to what extent this reporting of poor health represents the generally older Pittsburgh population, is caused by our obesity, smoking, and other poor health habits – or by environmental pollution. Nor do we know whether we would respond more positively if the Steelers win the Super Bowl.
