Description

This data is part of a project that has developed from the idea of Capability-Adjusted Life Years (CALYs) for the Swedish context. CALYs aim to be a questionnaire-based measure for quality of life that is based on the capability approach and useful for Swedish municipalities to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of interventions.

Economic evaluations in Swedish municipalities mainly rely on a basic cost-savings approach, which entails a risk that interventions with short-term savings are favored compared to interventions that result in long term welfare gains. CALYs would offer an opportunity to systematically measure welfare consequences of different interventions and for example allow a comparison between improved schooling vs drug rehabilitation.
The capability approach was suggested by Amartya Sen (Swedish Central Bank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, 1998), and it measures quality of life in terms of capabilities; i.e. what individuals can do or be, as opposed to measuring quality of life in terms of wealth or happiness.

Description

The document data_frequency_A.csv contains the data on self-reported background variables, inequality aversion, and capability levels for phrasing version A of the survey.

We used three different versions of the survey to test the impact of phrasing on the distribution of the answers in the Swedish population. The versions differed in the extent of how the six capabilities were described. Each version was distributed to an independent population sample.
