Please note that a revised version of this paper has been accepted for publication and is forthcoming in Health Economics. There are some differences between the value set reported in the Health Economics version and the provisional value set reported in the OHE Research Paper version. Accordingly, the EQ-5D-5L value set calculators relating to the OHE Research Paper version are no longer available for download, and will be replaced by new calculators to reflect the Health Economics version in due course. Any use of the content of these materials is the sole responsibility of the user. The authors assume no responsibility for, and disclaim all liability for, any consequences resulting from the use of the information herein. This paper reports the methods and findings from the EQ-5D-5L value set for England study. The value set is derived from the stated preference data of 996 members of the English general public. The study design followed the EuroQol Group's international protocol for valuing EQ-5D-5L health states. A single value set is reported, and implications for public decisions made using EQ-5D-5L data are discussed. This paper is intended to accompany OHE Research Paper 16/02 - 'New Methods for Modelling EQ-5D-5L Value Sets - An Application to English Data'.
