Table 3 Differences between older adults who reported higher degree vs lower degree of self-determination on QoL

From: Perceptions of self-determination and quality of life among Swedish home care recipients - a cross-sectional study

Health-related QoL Higher self-determination Md (Q1; Q3) Lower self-determination Md (Q1; Q3) Differences in Median Effect size p
EQ-5D-5 L totala 0.8 (0.6; 0.9) 0.6 (0.3; 0.7) 0.2 0.39 < 0.001
EQ-VASa 65 (50; 80) 50 (40; 65) 15 0.30 < 0.001
NHP totalb 24 (8; 40) 40 (26; 53) 16 0.30 < 0.001
  1. n difference between 117 and 128 depending on internal missing values
  2. p = Differences between higher and lower self-determination analysed using Mann-Whitney U Test
  3. EQ-5D-5 L total range between < 0 to 1. 1 = full health
  4. EQ-VAS range 0–100. 100 = best imaginable health
  5. NHP range from 0 to 100. 0 = best imaginable health
  6. a = Higher value = better QoL, b = Lower value = better QoL
