Ratio Scale

Definition

Health Economics

  • A property of some measures of health and also of some measures of utility, such that multiplying any scale by a constant does not affect the ratios between the values assigned to the entities being measured. For example, six kilometres is twice three kilometres and 6000 metres is twice 3000 metres (in this instance the kilometre scale being multiplied by 0.001).
