Abstract (Translated): 
In this paper we analyze the links between health status (measured by selfreported illness occurrence) and individuals' socioeconomic situation. Using the annual households surveys of Uruguay for the period 1991 to 2000, we compute probit models and find that men, unmarried, young people, occupied, those who do not live alone and those with more than 5 years of education, have a smaller probability of reporting a bad health status. We also find that the probability of reporting a bad health status has a descendent trend in the period, falling from 0,33 in 1991 to 0,25 in 2000.
