Abstract

Objectives

This study aimed to compare health preferences for EQ-5D-5L health states between urban and rural populations in China.

Methods

This study used pooled secondary data from two EQ-5D-5L valuation studies. Participants were recruited from Guizhou province and Chongqing municipality, China using quota sampling. Each participant was interviewed face-to-face to value a set of 15 or 16 out of 30 EQ-5D-5L health states using time trade-off (TTO) methods including composite TTO and other two variants. Regression analysis was used to compare health state preferences between urban and rural participants.

Results

A total of 597 participants (urban: 55.44%; rural: 44.56%) completed the valuation interviews. Both univariate and multivariable linear regression analyses showed that rural participants tended to value health states lower than urban participants regardless of severity of health states. The unadjusted and adjusted overall mean differences between the two groups were − 0.041 (95% confidence interval [CI] − 0.077, − 0.004, p-value = 0.031) and − 0.040 (95% CI − 0.078, − 0.002, p-value = 0.038), respectively. Predictions for the 3125 health states based on rural participants’ health preferences were lower than those based on urban participants’ health preferences.

Conclusion

There were small, yet statistically significant, differences in EQ-5D-5L health states preferences between urban and rural populations in China. Future study aiming at establishing a national value set should pay more attention to the sample representativeness.
