WHAT DOES QUALITY OF LIFE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Quality of life

Quality of life is the general well-being of individuals and societies. QOL has a wide range of contexts, including the fields of international development, healthcare, politics and employment. Quality of life should not be confused with the concept of standard of living, which is based primarily on income. Instead, standard indicators of the quality of life include not only wealth and employment but also the built environment, physical and mental health, education, recreation and leisure time, and social belonging. According to ecological economist Robert Costanza: While Quality of Life has long been an explicit or implicit policy goal, adequate definition and measurement have been elusive. Diverse "objective" and "subjective" indicators across a range of disciplines and scales, and recent work on subjective well-being surveys and the psychology of happiness have spurred renewed interest. One approach outlined in the journal of Applied Research in the Quality of Life posits four domains in assessing quality of life: ecology, economics, politics and culture.
