With the Latin Hypercube Points option, you can generate a number of estimates that mirror

the variability in the inputs to the health impact functions. The Latin Hypercube Points option

allows you to generate specific percentiles along the estimated incidence distribution. For

example, if you specify 20 points, then BenMAP will generate estimates of the 2.5th percentile,

7.5th percentile, and so on, up through the 97.5th percentile. The number of points suggested in

the drop down menu varies between 10 and 100. In addition, you can simply type in the desired

number of points. The greater the number of chosen points, the greater the time needed by

BenMAP to process the results. The relationship between the number of points and time needed

is essentially linear, so a doubling of the number of points would double the processing time.

If Point Mode is chosen, the number of Latin Hypercube Points cannot be modified and will

be ignored (treated as zero). However, with the Latin Hypercube Points option, a point

estimate will still be generated. As discussed in the chapter on Aggregation, Pooling, and

Valuation, by choosing the Point Mode, you have fewer pooling options. You cannot conduct

fixed/random effects pooling, nor any other procedure that depends on knowing the distribution,

or the range of variability of the incidence estimates.
