Table 2 Generalized linear model predicting standard gamble scores by health state severity, all respondents and subset meeting logic and variance criteria: regression coefficients and 95% confidence intervals

From: The effect of time of onset on community preferences for health states: an exploratory study

  Mildly severe state Moderately severe state Severe state
Variable estimate (95% CI) estimate (95% CI) estimate (95% CI)

  Mean(sd) = 0.84(0.25) Mean(sd) = 0.68(0.32) Mean(sd) = 0.45(0.37)
