Comparing the Predictive Power of Subjective and Objective Health Indicators: Changes in Hand Grip Strength and Overall Satisfaction with Life as Predictors of Mortality

Self-reported measures of health are generally treated as weak measures of respondents' objective health status.

Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study are used to estimate ...

This paper presents an empirical investigation of self-productivity in early childhood in Germany. The data are drawn from the mother-child questionnaire of the German Socio-Economic Panel for the birth ...

Patients (N=314) were classified by type of surgery (curative, reparative, palliative) as indicator of initial severity of disease.
