  1. Dependant variable: EQ-5D-5 L utility score; Independent variables: Model 1 - MLHF total score; Model 2 – MLHF domain scores; Model 3 – MLHF item scores.
  2. Abs diff. < 0.03 (0.05)% - proportion of predicted utilities whose absolute values deviate from the mean of the observed utility values by less than 0.03 (0.05); P.25 – 25th percentile; P.75 – 75th percentile; RMSE – Root Mean Square Error; MAE – Mean Absolute Error; ICC – Intra Class Correlation.
  3. MFP Multivariable fractional polynomials.
