Wallace, Robert B.
Gerontologist, v34 n4 p449-53 Aug 1994
Health survey research assesses health of individuals in population. Measures include prevalence/incidence of diseases, signs/symptoms, functional states, and health services utilization. Although assessing individual biologic robustness can be problematic, testable approaches do exist. Characteristics of health of populations/communities, not referent to individual constituents, have been underutilized, including measures of physical, social, and health service environment.
