Welcome

OPUF Health Preference Survey

This is a demo version of the Online PUF survey instrument. Please feel free to start the survey, explore the tool, and try the different tasks.

The following web pages will guide you through a series of questions and exercises. In some questions, we will ask you about your own health, and to compare different health problems. In other questions, we will ask you to make choices between different scenarios involving poor health, disability, and death. There are no right or wrong answers - it's just about your own perspective.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

At the end of the survey, all your responses will be combined. You can then compare your personal results to the responses of the general population.

This is only a demo version. Your responses will not be used for the research project. All your data will be deleted at the end of this session, i.e. when you close this window.

Thank you very much for your interest in this research project!

    Scoring health problems

    Based on your responses, we predict your attitude towards health. You can compare this with the general population.

    The scores below reflect how much health you think is in those health states.

    Health scores:
  • A score of 100% means perfect health, no health is lost
  • A score of 50% means 50% of your health is lost.
  • A score of 0% means all health is lost.
  • Scores lower than 0% are assigned to problems that seem worse than being dead.
  •  
    Mild health problems
    Compared to the general public, you assigned this health state a score.

    Your score:


    Population:
     
    Moderate health problems
