We intend to analyze the opinion of the population about the health status of the individuals from 20 European countries. The self assessed health ( SAH ) data are associated to an ordinal variable X. Our final aim is to establish the position of Romania in this European context from the health status point of view. The statistical analysis is based on more complementary indices. The mean of X is generally not adequate as an indicator for this type of data. Our study used also two other indicators which are specific for ordinal variables. So, in the present research it was applied a polarization index POA and also an inequality Gini coefficient IGO adapted for SAH data. Comparisons of all these results are also made.
