This paper presents a multinomial logistic regression model of health status based on data of 2710 employees from 10 provinces and regions in China in a July 2015 survey, which employed a three-stage stratified sampling method. The determinants of the health status of Chinese employees could be analyzed by four dimensions: individual characteristics, socio-economic characteristics, family characteristics, and job characteristics. We find that: (1) about 73.64% of the survey respondents reported good and excellent self-rated health, and only 5.13% of the survey respondents reported bad self-rated health; (2) the main factors influencing the employees’ health includes ethnicity, the proportion of health expenditure, region, the number of children and elders, salary, work conditions and work pressure; (3) compared with others, job characteristics is the most important influence factors to employees; (4) the national differences were obvious in the health status of Chinese employees, which was due to the cultivation of healthy dietetic and trophic habit and the health knowledge inquiry habit from childhood.
