EQ-5D-Y | Available modes of administration

EQ-5D-Y is designed for self-completion by children and adolescents aged 8-15 years. Proxy versions, for completion by observers, are also available.

The currently available modes of administration are:

  • EQ-5D-Y Proxy version 1: The caregiver (the proxy) is asked to rate the child’s/ adolescent’s health-related quality of life in their (the proxy’s) opinion.
  • EQ-5D-Y Proxy version 2: The caregiver (the proxy) is asked to rate how he/she (the proxy) thinks the child/ adolescent would rate his/her own health-related quality of life if the child/ adolescent were able to communicate it.

If you are unsure about which mode of administration to use, please contact the EuroQol Office. If a language version or mode of administration is not available, please contact the EuroQol Office.

Please note that the EuroQol Research Foundation is working on protocols for generating value sets for EQ-5D-Y. In the meantime, EQ-5D-Y data can be collected, but no value sets can be provided for this version.
