ABSTRACT:
Objective: We determined a role of self-appraisal in health formation of people of different age.

Materials and methods: We applied sociological, psychological and mathematical methods in the work. We developed the health self-appraisal questionnaire. The respondents of different age were surveyed. The integral indicators (health self-appraisal index) for the assessment of subjective component of health were used.

Results: Health self-appraisal of people of different age is different: the highest health rate was noted in young people (under 25 years old). In a mature age group, the self-appraisal of health among women was higher in comparison with men. We determined the increase of self-appraisal of health in men older than 61 years in contrast to women of this age who had its decrease. In women aged 25-44 years, the integral index of health self-appraisal was characterized with low criteria. And it was evaluated with high criteria in elderly people irrespective of gender.

Conclusions: At the health assessment of people of different age, it is very important to take into account its subjective component. Low self-appraisal of health is a risk factor for the formation of unhealthy forms of behavior among both young and elderly and old people, which means a need to determine the psychological state of the respondents with disabilities in self-appraisal.

KEYWORDS:
