The understanding of interdependences between behavioral factors and health is necessary to understand what factors form the health of population. This understanding is necessary to create different government policies for improving population health and to predict risk factors. Due to couple of researches self-assessed health is an important predictor of populations’ health. The interdependencies between self-assessed health status and such habits like alcohol consumption, binge drinking, smoking and sport activity was considered in this paper. The research was realized via constructing different logistic regression models on the base of «The Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey - Higher School of Economics (RLMS-HSE)» (the models are created in both cross-sectional and panel data). Also, there were created a couple of auxiliary models in the research to provide robustness check. The results of the research allow to assume that there is a statistically significant relationship between self-assessed health and behavioral factors in Russia. This may indicate that population’s health of Russia should be affected (inter alia) via policies that form healthy habits and stimulate the rejection of the unhealthy ones.
