Assessment of the EQ-5D-5L compared to EQ-5D-3L and generation of population norms in England

An on-going study at the University of Sheffield is comparing EQ-5D-5L and EQ-5D-3L data in the United Kingdom using the GP Patient Survey (GPPS). The study will also generate population norm data for the EQ-5D-5L. EQ-5D-5L was developed to address concerns with the discriminative properties of EQ-5D-3L. Clara Mukuria from the CLAHRC YH HEOM theme is working alongside colleagues at the University, Roberta Ara and Ben van Hout. Results will add to the growing body of knowledge on the performance of EQ-5D-5L as well as population norm data that can be used by researchers in the UK.
