Summary Health researchers commonly use the notion of complexity to indicate the problems faced in evaluating the effectiveness of many non-drug interventions.1-3 However, although it is rarely delineated, complexity has two meanings. In the first it is a property of the intervention, and in the second it is a property of the system in which the intervention is implemented. We examine the implications of these two views for economic evaluation.
