Visual analogue scale
To help people say how good or bad a health state is‚ we have drawn a scale (rather like a thermometer) on which the best state you can imagine is marked by 100 and the worst state is marked by 0.
We would like you to indicate on this scale how good or bad is your own health today‚ in your opinion. Please do this by drawing a line from the box “Your own health today” to whichever point on the scale indicates how good or bad your health state is.
