Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) was assessed using the Korean version of the EuroQoL 5 Dimension (EQ-5D) [23]. The EQ-5D consists of five health dimensions: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/uncomfortable, and anxiety/depression. The three response levels of the problem were answered for each dimension as follows: “no problem,” “moderate problem,” and “extreme problem.” Therefore, 243 (35) response levels of EQ-5D indicate different health statuses. These were converted into the EQ-5D index as a single numeric score using a weight model for the Korean population [24]. The EQ-5D index scores ranged from −0.171 to 1, with lower scores indicating poor health status [25]. The cutoff point of the EQ-5D index score for the severity assessment of major depression is 0.673 based on a previous study in a Korean population [26].
