Health Economics

  • A scale measure of health, or health-related quality of life, in which numerals (1, 2, 3,. . .) correspond to states of health (categories) usually having verbal descriptions (such as 'can perform limited activities of daily living '). The numerical categories are sometimes assumed to have equal intervals between them (but sometimes not).
