This discussion paper presents data from the Department of Health funded Measurement and Valuation of Health survey conducted at the Centre for Health Economics in 1993. This was a nationally representative interview survey of 3395 men and women aged 18 or over living in the UK. Amongst other things, the survey collected information on health status using the EuroQol (EQ-5D) descriptive system. The data is presented as a series of tables of age/sex population norms for the EQ-5D, for both self rated health status and weighted health state index. The tables are likely to be useful for researchers, clinicians, health care providers and policy makers, who are using EQ-5D to evaluate health care and who require baseline values for comparative purposes for monitoring population variations in health.
