These questions include the following:

  5. Poor
  1. Now thinking about your physical health, which includes physical illness and injury, for how many days during the past 30 days was your physical health not good?
  2. Now thinking about your mental health, which includes stress, depression, and problems with emotions, for how many days during the past 30 days was your mental health not good?
  3. During the past 30 days, for about how many days did poor physical or mental health keep you from doing your usual activities, such as self-care, work, or recreation?
