Health State Descriptions Time Begin
Now I would like to review different functions of your body. When answering these questions, I would like you to think about the last 30 days, taking both good and bad days into account. When I ask about difficulty, I would like you to consider how much difficulty you have had, on an average, in the past 30 days, while doing the activity in the way that you usually do it. By difficulty I mean requiring increased effort, discomfort or pain, slowness or changes in the way you do the activity. Please answer this question taking into account any assistance you have available.
Overall in the last 30 days, how much difficulty did you have with personal relationship or participation in the community?
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
Personal relationships include partners, relatives or friends. Participation in the community includes any form of social involvement such as going to town meetings, taking part in leisure or sporting activities in the town, neighbourhood or community. The relevant issue being asked in this question is whether the individual is facilitated to participate in these activities or whether there are barriers to doing so.
