Teacher's Self-rated Health in Muhammadiyah Schools in Jakarta, Indonesia


Self-rated health (SRH) is a simple, easy-to-measure indicator of general health and the best predictor of service utilization, cost, and mortality. Moreover, it is a valid and reliable measurement, notably for cognitive impairment. This study explores the determinant of the SRH of teachers in DKI Jakarta, Indonesia. The authors used a cross-sectional research design, which collects independent and dependent variables at a time. The research respondents were teachers from Muhammadiyah schools, which include elementary, middle, high, and vocational schools, in DKI Jakarta Province. The sampling technique was carried out purposively, with a total sample of 141 teachers. Data collection was carried out in July–August 2021. The results showed that only 2% of the respondents had a poor SRH and 2% had good SRH. Women were 2.3 times more at risk of being in poor SRH than men. In addition, respondents who do not have national insurance (BPJS) have a 2.4% more chance of being in poor SRH compared to those with insurance.
