Figure 1: Percentage of adults reporting fair or poor self-rated health by state

The self-rated health question is one of four core health-related quality of life measures that have been monitored by states since 1993 using the BRFSS. The question asks “Would you say that in general your health is excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor?”
