Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The SF-36v2® Health Survey is a 36-item instrument for measuring health status and outcomes via patient self-report. It is designed for use in surveys of general and specific populations, health policy evaluations, and clinical practice and research. The SF-36v2® measures the following eight health concepts, which are relevant across age, disease, and treatment groups: physical functioning, role limitations due to physical health problems, bodily pain, general health, vitality (energy/fatigue), social functioning, role limitations due to emotional problems, and mental health (psychological distress and psychological well-being). Both standard (4-week) and acute (1-week) recall versions are available. The surveys standardized scoring system yields a profile of eight health scores and two summary measures (physical and mental health) and a self-evaluated change in health status.

Selection Rationale

The SF-36v2® Health Survey was selected because it and its predecessor, the SF-36® Health Survey, are widely used and have been documented in nearly 13,000 peer-reviewed publications. It is valid and reliable, and because it is short, the SF-36v2® can be reproduced in a questionnaire with room for other, more precise measures.
