The article presents a longitudinal population study conducted on finding the relationship between self-rated health and 10-year percent weight change and determining whether self-rated health would predict weight change. It mentions that analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to evaluate the relationship of 10-year percent weight change and self-rated health. It concludes that self-rated health is not able to predict weight change over 10-year period in the age group of 30, 40, 50 and 60 years.
