EurekaMag.com has newly published 17,300 studies on how to measure Quality of Life. In contrast to Standard of Living which is based primarily on income, Quality of Life includes wealth and employment but also the built environment, physical and mental health, education, recreation and leisure time, and social belonging of individuals and societies. While the site's research category covers all studies on the measurement of Quality of Life, the Life, Earth & Health Sciences Research Section 33 contains 205 previously unpublished articles focusing on the measurement and analysis of Quality of Life.
The Life, Earth & Health Sciences Research Chapter 32273 presents a wide range of assessments of Quality of Life incorporating parameters from ecology, economics, politics and culture. It features newly published abstracts on developing a psychiatric research instrument for measuring quality of life, the Missoula-VITAS quality of life index for measuring quality of life for patients with terminal illness, measuring quality of life in patients with cancer, asthma, arthritis, and with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It also includes abstracts on measuring quality of life in dementia, in diabetes and in patients with AIDS.
