Table 3 Median EQ-5D-3L health utility scores

From: A comparison of health utility scores calculated using United Kingdom and Canadian preference weights in persons with alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers

  UK-based preference weights (95 % CI) Canadian-based preference weights (95 % CI)
Persons with AD 0.85 (0.81, 0.88)a,b 0.84 (0.83, 0.84)a,c
Caregivers 0.80 (0.80, 0.85) b,d 0.83 (0.83, 0.83) c,d
  1. Note. AD Alzheimer’s disease, CI confidence interval, UK United Kingdom, Health utility scores were not calculated for three persons with AD who did not answer all of the EQ-5D-3L questions
  2. a p = 0.63 for median difference in persons with AD (UK versus Canadian weights)
  3. b p = 0.06 for median difference in persons with AD versus caregivers (UK weights)
  4. c p = 0.35 for median difference in persons with AD versus caregivers (Canadian weights)
  5. d p < 0.0001 for median difference in caregivers (UK versus Canadian weights)
