Determines basic factors influencing Russia's inhabitants' health during the recent changes. Data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey for 1994-2000 serve as a main source of the paper. Physical & emotional health seems to depend largely on such key demographic features as age, sex, & residence. Ethnic Slavs tend to assess their health below average, as do individuals living for over 5 years in poor households. People with higher education have better chances to retain their emotional health. Poverty for over 5 years & at least one year of unemployment have negative impact on men's state of mind. Smoking for over three years, lack of sleep, & physical passivity are clearly harmful for health, while believers tend to assess their physical health higher then unbelievers do. 20 References.
