  1. aSF36 values are centred around 50 (i.e. values > or < 50 reflect values higher or lower than age–sex standardized values in the general French population)
  2. bSF36 values are centred around 0 (i.e. values > or < 0 reflect values higher or lower than age–sex standardized French values in the general French population, in standard deviation unit)
