  1. The EQ-5DIndex is a continuous variable between 0 and 1 (0 = worst state, 1 = best state). The 5 EQ-5D dimensions as shown in Model (2) to model (6) are categorical variables (1 = no problems, 2 = some problems, 3 = extreme problems). Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) Angina Grading Scale is a categorical variable between 1 (angina only during strenuous or prolonged physical activity) and 4 (inability to perform any activity without angina). New York Heart Association (NYHA) Functional Classification is a categorical variable between 1 (cardiac disease, but no symptoms and no limitation in ordinary physical activity) and 4 (severe limitations, experiences symptoms even while at rest). The current state of assistance is a categorical variable with 1 (no external help or intra-familial help only), 2 (assisted living and/or home care services) and 3 (short or long-term care or temporal hospitalization).
