A figure depicts a 2 by 2 table for determining the importance of a health issue based on 1) the frequency of the health issue shown on the y axis and 2) the cost per person shown on the x axis. The upper left box shows the health issue is of moderate importance when the frequency is high but the cost is low. The lower left box shows the health issue is of lower importance when the frequency and cost are both low. The upper right box shows the health issue is of higher importance when the frequency and cost are both high. And the lower right box shows the health issue is of moderate importance when the frequency is low but the cost is high.
