Quality of Life Questionnaire

David Evans, Ph.D. 
Wendy Cope, M.A.


The Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ) measures the relationship between a client’s quality of life and other behaviors or afflictions, such as physical health, psychological health, and alcohol or other substance use. Results highlight areas of the client’s life that may require change to alleviate specific symptoms. Its efficient design makes the QLQ an ideal screening tool for employee assistance, wellness, stress, weight control, or any other program in which people desire change.

The QLQ consists of five major domains, 15 content scales, and a social desirability scale. The five major domains are: General Well-Being, Interpersonal Relations, Organizational Activity, Occupational Activity, and Leisure and Recreational Activity.
