From: Measurement properties of EQ-5D-3L and EQ-5D-5L in recording self-reported health status in older patients with substantial multimorbidity and polypharmacy

Dimension RS between 3L and Barthel Indexa,b 95% CI RS between 5L and Barthel Indexa,b 95% CI
Mobility − 0.37 − 0.48 to − 0.25 − 0.42 − 0.52 to − 0.30
Selfcare − 0.57 − 0.65 to − 0.48 − 0.58 − 0.66 to − 0.48
Usual activities − 0.45 − 0.55 to − 0.34 − 0.42 − 0.52 to − 0.31
Pain/discomfort − 0.15 − 0.27 to − 0.02 − 0.16 − 0.28 to − 0.03
Anxiety/depression − 0.14 − 0.27 to − 0.01 − 0.13 − 0.26 to − 0.003
  1. CI confidence interval
  2. aSpearman’s rho effect sizes of between 0.20 and 0.35 are considered weak, between 0.35 and 0.50 moderate, > 0.50 strong
  3. bHigher EQ-5D item score indicates worse health problems; higher EQ-5D index score indicates better health
