Health Economics

  • A procedure used in pairwise comparisons, through which descriptions of states of health are scaled by subjects who compare descriptive statements in pairs and to indicate which statement of the pair presents greater 'intensity'. Thurstone's Law is a probabilistic expression for the strength of this intensity. Named after the US psychometrician Louis Leon Thurstone (1887-1955).
