    This comprehensive short-form with only 36 questions yields an 8-scale health profile as well as summary measures of health-related quality of life. As documented in more than 2000 publications, the SF-36® has proven useful in monitoring general and specific populations, comparing the burden of different diseases, differentiating the health benefits produced by different treatments, and in screening individual patients.

    An even shorter — 1-page, 2-minute — survey form has been shown to yield summary physical and mental health outcome scores that are interchangeable with those from the SF-36® in both general and specific populations. This short-form — the SF-12® — which was published in early 1995 is already one of the most widely used surveys. (more details)

  • What is the SF-8™?   Try the online demo or Order the manual or Download the form
    The SF-8™ Health Survey represents a major advance in the application of SF technology for purposes of achieving both brevity and comprehensiveness in population health surveys. It has only eight questionnaire items. By relying on a single item to measure each of the eight domains of health in the SF-36® Health Survey, the SF-8™ represents the ultimate phase in the evolution of SF assessments - single-item scales.

  • SF-36® Norm Based Scoring (NBS)
    The new Norm-based scoring (NBS) for the SF-12® and SF-36® is a recalibration of the original SF-36® and makes the profiles easier to interpret and results directly comparable with the widely used summary measures.
