Mapping EQ-5D-5L to 3L

Background

This is a project was part-funded by The Department of Health’s Policy Research Unit in Economic Methods of Evaluation of Health and Social Care Interventions [EEPRU].

The aim of the project was to develop a reference case mapping between 3L and 5L, suitable for mapping in either direction.

Further details can be found on the EEPRU project page, estimating the relationship between EQ-5D-5L and EQ-5D-3L.

DSU work

In order for analysts to be able to easily implement the results from the mapping model, Stata, Excel and R commands have been developed. These are available below, along with instructions on how to use them.
