Objective To explore the feasibility of using the SF 36 in Chinese population. Methods We tested the reliabilit y and validity of the SF 36 in 1603 rural residents, 646 urban residents, 70 hi gh school girls, 122 patients with osteoporosis, and 150 stroke patients. Results The reliability and validity of the SF 36 in general were a cceptable, however, the reliability and validity varied among different domains and in different populations. The reliability and validity of the domains “limi tations in physical activities”, “limitations in usual role activities because of physical health problems”, “bodily pain”, and “general health perception ” were better than those of the domains “vitality”, “limitations in social a ctivities”, “limitations in usual role activities because of emotional problem s”, and “mental health”. Conclusion The results indicate th at we can use the SF 36 in Chinese population, but we have to pay attentions to the variance of the reliability and validity in different populations, especial ly for the interpretation of the results of the domains related to mental and so cial functions.
