  • Abstract

    The overall aim of this study was to examine if health utility values differ for children, adults, and the elderly, in order to test whether we value the lives of children, adults, and the elderly differently. To that end, the study collected utilities from study participants between the ages of 18 and 65 using varying health state scenarios. The participants provided utility values for themselves as well as values for hypothetical or real children or elderly persons they care for. Standard gamble and time trade-off procedures were used to value four hypothetical health states: severe seizure disorder, severe bilateral vision loss, severe mental impairment and diabetes.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
