    Author(s): Satyendra Nath Chakrabartty*

    Objectives: To review methodological issues of disability measuring tools (DMTs) and Health-related Quality of life (HRQoL) and to transform item-scores and health-profiles to continuous scores satisfying desired properties Method: Using data driven weights, item score are converted to equidistant score (E) and value of Health-profile is obtained as weighted sum (Y). E-scores and Y-scores are standardized separately to Z-scores and further transformed to proposed scores (P) in [1, 100]. Scale score as sum of item-wise P-scores follow Normal distribution. Results: P-scores offer better arithmetic aggregation, meaningful comparisons, relative importance of domains, predicting disability scores using HRQoL scores as predictors and statistical inferences for longitudinal or snap-shot data. Methods described to obtain r.. View More»
