Now that you have completed the questionnaire, you can begin scoring it. Each section is designed to provide you with a sub-score. Then sub-score can be plotted on the risk graph to help you assess your risk in each area. To score each section, simply add up the numbers after each of your selections. Then plot your total on the graph. In this test, a high score indicates you are doing many things to insure or improve your health. A low score says that you may be taking unnecessary risks and should consider altering those behaviors in which you scored zero or a one.
