—The goals of this paper are: to determine the stages
of calculation of the quality of life index, to identify the quality
of life index estimation branches, to distinguish main indicators
which depict quality of each work out area, to introduce the
corresponding mathematical models of each area, and present
the method of calculation of the integral quality of life index.
There are plenty of models used to measure the quality of
population’s life index, but as a rule they estimate influence of
economical variables. Author in this paper tries to include much
more indicators which cover all important dimensions. The
originality of the paper includes determination of major
dimensions, which define the quality of life index, two proposed
mathematical models of calculation of the integral quality of the
life index and specific indicators suitable for every situation,
estimation of ways to measure weigh constituent coefficients,
choosing the unit of measurement of any indicator, discussion of
different ways of receiving the necessary information.
Mentioned models are modern ones, not used before. Research
is theoretical one. Author is going to make practical steps to use
this methodology during the research participating in Project
“Creation of system of measurement indicators and evolution
model of the quality of life of Lithuanian population”.
—Indicators, integral quality of life index,
mathematical models, quality of life index.
