From: A comparison of four different approaches to measuring health utility in depressed patients

Utility instrument Area under the ROC curve 95% confidence interval
EQ-5D-3L 0.71 0.66 – 0.76
EQ-5D VAS 0.68 0.63 – 0.74
SF-6D 0.81 0.76 – 0.85
SF-12 new algorithm 0.80 0.76 – 0.85
  1. p-value<0.0001 for test of equality of the AUCs.
