Abstract

Purpose

To generate a normative profile for the EQ-5D-5L dimensions, EQ-5D-5L index, and EQ-VAS scores of the general Thai population and to examine the associations between sociodemographic characteristics and their norm-based scores.

Methods

Data from 2019 general Thai samples were employed to estimate the norm-based scores elicited using the Thai EQ-5D-5L value set. Descriptive statistics were used to estimate the norm-based scores stratified by gender and six age bands to obtain the normative profile for the general Thai population. Multivariable logistic and Tobit regression models were used to investigate the relationships between sociodemographic characteristics and EQ-5D-5L dimensions, EQ-5D-5L index, and EQ-VAS scores.

Results

The mean EQ-5D-5L index and EQ-VAS scores were 0.931 and 82.3, respectively. Approximately 88.9% of the participants reported 19 out of 3125 (3%) possible health states. The odds of having problems with mobility was greatest for the sample aged ≥ 65 years and declined with decreasing age. Women, samples with advancing age, and those with a household income of ≤ 10,000 Baht/month and fair and poor health perceptions were more likely to report a lower EQ-5D-5L index. Furthermore, advanced age and fair and poor health perception were significantly associated with lower EQ-VAS scores.

Conclusion

The EQ-5D-5L population norms were established as the benchmark for both EQ-5D-5L index and EQ-VAS scores for the general Thai population. This is expected to support the health service research and inform policymakers on the allocation of limited healthcare resources.
