Table 2 Values of a QALY via calculations from survey research

From: The social value of a QALY: raising the bar or barring the raise?

Using 12-month (mean) WTP value and (mean) standard QALY index:
CONDITION CALCULATION VALUE OF QALY
  1. Mean WTP to avoid 12-month S = £1870  
Stomach 2. Average QALY benefit = 0.104 £17,980
  Divide 1. by 2.  
  1. Mean WTP to avoid 12-month H = £3250  
Head 2. Average QALY benefit = 0.144 £22,570
  Divide 1. by 2.  
Using 3-month (mean) WTP value and (mean) standard QALY index:
CONDITION CALCULATION VALUE OF QALY
  1. Mean WTP to avoid 3-month S = £810  
Stomach 2. Average QALY benefit = 0.026 £31,150
  Divide 1. by 2.  
  1. Mean WTP to avoid 3-month H = £1495  
Head 2. Average QALY benefit = 0.036 £41,530
  Divide 1. by 2.  
Using 12-month (median) WTP value and (median) standard QALY index:
CONDITION CALCULATION VALUE OF QALY
  1. Median WTP to avoid 12-month S = £500  
Stomach 2. Median QALY benefit = 0.025 £20,000
  Divide 1. by 2.  
  1. Median WTP avoid 12-month H = £1000  
Head 2. Median QALY benefit = 0.025 £40,000
  Divide 1. by 2.
