Self-reported health provides a good indication of individuals' overall health status which encompasses a range of dimensions including both physical and mental health. Individuals were asked to assess their general health status as either "excellent", "very good", "good", "fair" or "poor". The majority of respondents in both countries reported that they were in good, very good or excellent health with somewhat more Canadians (88%) than Americans (85%) classifying themselves in these categories. (Table 1) The results were consistent for all age groups, except for those 65 years of age and over.

Americans, however, were more likely to report "excellent" health than Canadians (26% vs. 24%). This was related to the larger proportion of Americans 65 years of age and over reporting "excellent" health compared with Canadians in the same age group (15% vs. 8%). (Chart 1 - Table A.1)
