The EQ-5D (European Quality of Life-5 Dimensions) is a instrument used to evaluate quality of life. It has been widely used in Western health related surveys and so data is available for quite large populations that can be related to diseases such as those classified by ICD-10 codes. It is thought more meaningful to map EQ-5D data to QALYs than disability life year data to DALYs in most health economical analysis.
