This book provides an essential guide to the use of the EuroQol Group’s value sets for anyone working with EQ-5D data. The EQ-5D is one of the most internationally widely used generic health state descriptive systems, with applications in clinical trials, public health research and assessments of value for money. In addition to providing a way of describing health and health improvement, the EQ-5D facilitates the valuation of health and health gain through its pre-existing value sets, spanning a wide range of countries and continents. This book brings together a comprehensive inventory of these value sets and their characteristics. In addition, in response to frequent requests from users of EQ-5D data for advice on valuation, the book provides clear guidance on how to choose which value set for what purpose.
