This data set contains a sample of the data used in the Bayesian analysis used to model the cost-effectiveness of acupuncture in the management of chronic headache. Data consists in the measure of effectiveness (in terms of annual QALYs) for the two arms of the trial ($t=0$ indicates usual care, while $t=1$ indicates usual care and in addition up to 12 acupuncture treatments over three months from appropriately trained physiotherapists). Also, the dataset contains the values of the upper bounds for the average and standard deviation of the cost distribution.
