Features and benefits


With more than 41,000,000 surveys taken and over 32,000 licenses issued to date, the SF Health Surveys are the most widely used PRO tools in the world. Whether you're working with large populations or individual patients, there's a generic health survey to do the job. 

The SF-36v2®, SF-12v2® and SF-8™ Health Surveys measure the same eight health domains for adults aged 18 and older. They provide psychometrically-based physical component summary (PCS) and mental component summary (MCS) scores.

These surveys are for adults 18 years of age and older, and can be self-administered or interview-administered. Multiple other modes of administration are offered, such as online, PDA and more. Translations are available for multiple languages and countries.

Scores are calibrated so that 50 is the average score or norm. This norm-based score allows comparison among the three surveys and across the more than 19,000 studies published in the past 20 years.

This bibliography includes studies of hundreds of diseases, conditions and populations, and greatly enhances the ability to interpret SF health survey data in new studies.
