Resumen

Abstract
Background: To analyse time trends in self-rated health in older people by gender and age and examine disability in
the time trends of self-rated health.
Methods: The data used come from the Spanish National Health Surveys conducted in 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2011-
12. Samples of adults aged 16 yr and older were selected. Multivariate logistic regression was used to assess the association
between age, gender, socio-economic status, marital status, disability and self-rated health across period study.
Results: Women exhibited lower (higher) prevalence of good self-rated health (disability) compared to men. The multivariate
analysis for time trends found that good self-rated health increased from 2001 to 2012. Overall, variables associated
with a lower likelihood of good self-rated health were: being married or living with a partner, lower educational
level, and disability.
Conclusion: Trends of good self-rated health differ by gender according to socio-demographic factors and the prevalence
of disability.
