Data from the Manitoba Longitudinal Study on Aging are used to test the hypothesis that self-rated health status is a good predictor of mortality among the elderly. The data are for 3128 elderly noninstitutionalized residents of Manitoba Canada who were aged 65 years or over in 1971. The findings provide empirical support for the hypothesis that the way a person views his or her health is an important predictor of subsequent health outcomes. (ANNOTATION)
