  • * Amount of time that respondents were willing to trade from their own life to prevent each health state in the respondent’s child or a hypothetical child.

  • Responses were significantly different between the 2 samples at the 0.05 level using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. This test measures the tendency for 1 group to have higher ranked responses, so it is possible for 1 group to have consistently higher responses than another group even though the median response is the same for the 2 groups.
