Supporting material for the following paper and for the associated algorithm to estimate utilities described as follows:

Rivero-Arias, O, Ouellet, M, Gray, A, Wolstenholme, J, Rothwell, PM, and Luengo-Fernandez, R (2010). Mapping the modified Rankin scale (mRS) measurement into the generic EuroQol (EQ-5D) health outcome. Med Decis Making, 30(3):341-54

While the authors have made every effort to ensure the reliability of this algorithm, they will not accept responsibility for any errors, omissions, inaccuracies or any consequences arising from the use of the algorithm. Users do so at their own risk.

A Stata command that translates mRS data into EQ-5D quality of life utility values is already available and users who would like to test the beta version can request a copy directly to Oliver Rivero-Arias.

This command has been prepared by Juan Manuel Ramos-Goñi and Oliver Rivero-Arias based on the research reported in Medical Decision Making 2010. We would be grateful if you could acknowledge use of this algorithm in any published outputs.
