EQ-5D 5L | Valuation: Standard value sets
A standardized valuation study protocol (called EQ-VT) was developed by the EuroQol Group to create standard value sets for the EQ-5D-5L. This protocol is based on the use of the composite time trade-off (cTTO) valuation technique, supplemented by a discrete choice experiment (DCE). We recommend EQ-5D-5L users to use the standard value sets, as these were produced with the EuroQol Group’s standardised valuation technology EQ-VT.
A list of all currently available standard value sets for the EQ-5D-5L can be found in the table below (Updated as of 14DEC2018).
If a standard EQ-5D-5L value set is not available for your country, but an EQ-5D-3L value set is available, you can choose to use a so-called “crosswalk” value set. For guidance on submissions to NICE please see the NICE position statement. For instructions on how to select the most appropriate value set for your study, please see Choosing a value set.
