Two Scales for Measuring International Health Status.
Larson, James S.
Evaluation and the Health Professions, v14 n4 p422-37 Dec 1991
Two scales for measuring international health status are proposed as alternatives to the current measure--infant mortality rate. Health Status 1 is an interval scale combining infant mortality and literacy rate. Health Status 2 comprises these statistics, plus death rate for persons 65 years and older, and mental hospital admissions. (SLD)
