Supporting Material Economic Evaluation in Clinical Trials
This web page and the web address below provide datasets and programs for Stata for Windows (Stata Corporation, College Station, Texas, U.S) as examples of the analysis of cost (and QALYs) discussed in chapter 5, estimation of sampling uncertainty for the comparison of cost and effect, and calculation of sample size and power for cost-effectiveness analysis in clinical trials (both discussed in chapter 9). We anticipate that the web-based material will be expanded and updated over time.
