Health State Valuations
The questions I am going to ask you now are about different states of health. I will present several different states, and I want you to try to imagine what it
would be like to live in those states.
If you look at these cards you will see that each card describes one health state. Let me begin by reading each card out loud (READ EACH CARD AND HAND IT TO RESPONDENT). Now, for each state, I am going to ask you to describe what you imagine that state would be like in terms of different aspects
Now please try to imagine the following health state: total blindness in both eyes, acquired as an adult.
Overall, how much difficulty would a person in this state have with
personal relationships or participation in the community?
