Abstract: The thesis presents an approach to modelling SF-6D health states preference data. It provides a new approach to estimating health state values data using Bayesian methods. The data set is the UK 6-dimensional short form health survey (SF-6D) valuation study, which is a generic preference-based measure of health derivative from the 36-item short form health survey (SF-36). A sample of 249 health states defined by the SF-6D was valued by a representative sample of 611 members of the UK general population, using the standard gamble (SG). The thesis presents the results from applying two random effect models to the data using a Bayesian approach; one with constant variance and another with variable variance, and then comparing these results to the original results of the random effect model estimated using a classical approach. The thesis also investigates these results for the future implementation of the SF- 6D and further work in the field.
