Interview ask (JRA task2): 

The task it to produce data visualization in order to show differences between:

  1. Objective and normative answers of experts; objective means how things are now if the costs are included in current costing according to the experts; normative means how things should be according to the experts.
  2. The aim is to show potential differences in underestimated costs of disease e.g. by showing which and how much each of the cost categories from the table is underestimated by not being counted at present; compared to what expert think should be the case.
  3. Differences between countries.
  4. Feel free to suggest anything else that would help to build some story and see patterns in the data; you may add data if needed; make the assumption if needed.
  5. You will be assessed more on how interesting, clear, and appropriate your data visualization is, rather than if you use the right numbers or assumptions.

Firstly, Columns B-F show the cost categories with their levels, with B being the most parent category.

Secondly, Column G contains the average score. Which is an indication of expert agreement that this cost category should be included in the estimation of disease burden.

Thirdly, Scores >2.5 means that they are important enough o be include, with the max being 5 as very important.

Also, note that some of the experts didn’t provide the answer.
