Abstract

Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) assessments are designed to reflect a patient's perspective of how a disease has affected their overall health status. Patient-centered outcomes are of value both for risk assessment and as an outcome measure. Strategies for analyzing HRQOL data are inconsistent primarily because the data frequently do not meet underlying assumptions of traditional methods for statistical analyses and require a careful analytic approach.
