General impressions
The Finnish Health 2000 survey is a very comprehensive survey about health and disability of individuals. It is not conceptualized as a disability survey. In line with this, most of the questions do not ask on limitations and restrictions as we see this in other surveys. However, there are many items/questions (especially in the self-administered questionnaires) which address BF and A&P issues.
The order of the questions in the Home interview (section B) is always the same. First, the identification of the illness, year of diagnosis, operation, treatment, medication, how many times have you seen the doctor.
