Default Lighting Comparisons

I am contemplating changing from T5 fluorescents to leds. Is there a good way to compare the effectiveness of the two? When I purchase light bulbs for our home I see comparisons like a 13 watt led is comparable to a 60 watt incandescent. Is such a calculation valid for T5s vs leds? If so where would I find such a thing? I realize I have to take into account many factors beyond light intensity but I thought this could also be helpful.
