From: Comparison of the SF-6D and the EQ-5D in patients with coronary heart disease

  EQ-5D
SF-6D M SC UA PD AD
PF 0.31 0.34 0.42 0.24 0.11
RL 0.19 0.09 0.35 0.30 0.21

  1. All correlations (spearman) above 0.1 are significant at the p < 0.01 level; all correlations above 0.2 are significant at the p < 0.0001 level. Correlations between like domains are indicated in bold.
  2. EQ-5D dimensions: M: mobility; SC: self care; UA: usual activities; PD: pain/discomfort; AD: anxiety/depression. SF-6D dimensions: PF: physical functioning; RL: role limitation; SF: social functioning; PN: pain; MH: mental health; VT: vitality.
