A review of studies mapping (or cross walking) from non-preference based measures of health to generic preference-based measures


  • Brazier, JE
  • Yang, Y
  • Tsuchiya, A


This paper presents a systematic review of current practice in mapping between nonpreference based measures and generic preference-based measures. It reviews the studies identified by a systematic search of the published literature and the grey literature. This review seeks to address the feasibility and overall validity of this approach, the circumstances when it should be considered and to bring together any lessons for future mapping studies.
