ABSTRACT
Chapter 31 of the book "Health Systems Performance Assessment" is presented. It reports a number of paradoxical findings in analyses of population health surveys, suggesting that self-reported health measures may give misleading results in the absence of adjustments for these differences. It highlights the strategies for enhancing the comparability of self-reported health measures. It also presents empirical examples of how anchoring vignettes may be used to understand variation in expectations for health.
