Health Economics

  • An instrument used in conjoint analysis. It presents in matrix form how the subject can have more of one attribute of a service only by having less of another. In complex cases, where the attributes are many, the matrices usually reduce the number of comparisons to pairs (pairwise comparisons) or some other manageable number.
