ReQoL-UI preference weights

ReQoL-UI preference weights

Recovering Quality of Life Utility Index (ReQoL-UI) is the preference-based measure from ReQoL-10 and ReQoL-20. ReQoL-UI consists of six mental health items and one physical health item contained in both ReQoL-10 and ReQoL-20.  Therefore, preference weights can be calculated from both ReQoL-10 and ReQoL-20.  Preference weights for the UK were estimated from a sample of 305 from the UK general population using the time trade-off method and utilities range from -0.195 to 1.
