Journal of choice modelling, 2015, vol. 16, issue C, 50-57

Abstract: •A meta-simulation strategy analyzes what affects utility-difference precision.•Meta-data are obtained from 34 individual DCE patient-preference data sets.•Utility-difference precision is regressed on sample size and study characteristics.•Study-design features affect precision more than experimental-design efficiency.•An empirical sample-size power equation is derived for DCE health studies.
