The report reveals that there are still disparities between rural and urban areas, men and women, population groups, different age cohorts and those with and without disabilities in terms of perceived health status. In addition, there appears to be a link between perceived health status and subjective assessment of the household's quality of life. The linkages observed do not necessarily establish causation in a particular direction.
