From: Do English and Chinese EQ-5D versions demonstrate measurement equivalence? an exploratory study

Dependent variable Unadjusted influence of language version Adjusted influence of language version*
  Odds ratio (95%CI) p-value Corresponding proportion interval Odds ratio (95%CI) p-value Corresponding proportion interval
Mobility 1.60 (0.62, 4.12) 0.330 (-17.0% to +9.8%) 2.09 (0.60, 7.30) 0.249 (-20.0% to +10.5%)
Usual activities 2.75 (0.93, 8.13) 0.067 (-20.4% to +1.4%) 4.16 (1.01, 17.09) 0.048 (-22.4% to -0.2%)
Pain/discomfort 1.10 (0.45, 2.70) 0.828 (-20.9% to +10.4%) 1.21 (0.38, 3.87) 0.752 (-29.9% to +11.9%)

  1. 95%CI = 95% confidence interval; Chinese language was the reference group; self-care was excluded because no problems were reported by subjects completing the Singaporean English EQ-5D. *Adjusted for the influence of age, gender, years of education, employment status and pain VAS score. Pain VAS score was not included in the model for the pain/discomfort item.
