    This has lots of SF-36 data (incl. one table with 0-100 scoring)

    [​IMG]

    0-100 scoring (e.g. as used in the PACE Trial) is given in columns 3-6 in this table only. All the other tables are normalised for a mean of 50 and SD of 10 for the population.

    Regarding Role Emotional scores and the SF-36

    I once had a look at some SF-36 questionnaires that had been filled in by ME/CFS patients. I was (and am) fairly sure that people hadn't read the Role Emotional questions properly. I saw somebody else mention this themselves.

    Here is an extract from the questionnaire:

    Quite a few people had "Yes" for all three of the questions in section 6. I thought for some of them, even if it had been the case for one or more of them, I'm not sure they would have been rushing to say it in the questionnaire; it seemed to me that they hadn't read the question closely - it was part of a long questionnaire. This might be more of a problem with people with ME/CFS who only have so much concentration and mental stamina/energy.
