Survey Module for Measuring Health State

This document contains a set of questions on health state, to enable the production of internationally comparable measurements for this topic. It reflects the work of the Budapest Initiative Task Force, composed of experts from many countries and international organizations. The Budapest Initiative recommends the inclusion of these questions in health interview surveys, organised at the national or international level, and encourages users to share their results and evaluations of the collected data.
The Budapest Initiative, established in 2005 under the Work Programme of the Conference on European Statisticians, is a collaboration of the World Health Organization, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and Eurostat.
