States 11111 and Dead served as anchor points and were therefore not part of the TTO task. Each respondent valued the same 17 states: 11112 11113 11121 11131 11133 11211 11312 12111 13311 21111 22222 23232 32211 32223 32313 33323 33333 The TTO valuations were transformed to lie on the interval [-1,1]. States regarded better than Dead were calculated as t/10, where t is the number of years in 11111. States regarded worse than Dead were calculated as -t/10. A random effects model was used to derive an additive utility function.

Disutilities (1S) were used in the model estimations. 12 different models were tested. The resulting Danish value set was based on a main effects model including:  A variable for each of the 5 dimensions (0 = no problems, 1 = some problems, 2 = extreme problems).  A dummy variable for each of the 5 dimensions (1 = extreme problems, 0 = otherwise).  The intercept, representing any deviation from Full health. 66. 367 AD3 A Danish value set that includes the N3 factor (used when any dimension is at level 3) is also available from the EuroQol Executive Office.

Although these issues are discussed here to help you decide which EQ-5D value set to choose, these same issues are faced by researchers regardless of which descriptive system is used to measure health. Early in its development, the EuroQol Group adopted the VAS as its standard valuation method (Kind, 2003). The main reason for this was that self-completion questionnaires were seen as the only practical means of obtaining large valuation data sets and the VAS was the most suited to such a survey instrument.
