Abstract
Four generic, preference-weighted, health-related quality of life (HRQL) questionnaires (the Quality of Well-Being, the Health Utilities Index, the EQ-5D, and the SF-6D) are reviewed. Although all of these questionnaires are designed to measure the same concept, each uses a different model of health, a different method of deriving preferences, and a different scoring formula.
