EQ-5D 5L | Valuation

12 April 2018 – Status of EQ-5D-5L Valuation Studies Using Standardized Valuation Methodology

A standardized valuation study protocol (called EQ-VT) has been developed by the EuroQol Group to ensure a common methodology for the evaluation studies needed to create 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).

A list of all currently available value sets for the EQ-5D-5L can be found in the table below. For instructions on how to select the most appropriate value set for your study, please see Choosing a value set. For guidance on submissions to NICE please see NICE position statement.

If an 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. A crosswalk value set is one that has been created for the EQ-5D-3L and then adapted to fit the EQ-5D-5L descriptive system. For detailed information on the crosswalk value sets and methodology, and to access a tool that allows you to calculate crosswalk values, please click here.
