Lorsque les modalités de réponse à une question de santé subjective sont utilisées différemment par différents individus, on dit que celles-ci sont affectées d’un effet DIF. Nous présentons une méthode non-paramétrique de détection et de correction de tels effets dans les auto-évaluations de santé subjective. Nous illustrons cette méthode par la mise en évidence d'un effet DIF potentiel dans le cas de l'auto-évaluation du niveau de douleur physique ressenti par des personnes âgées issues de différents pays européens et montrons comment le prendre en compte dans l’analyse statistique.
