The Methodology of Calculation the Quality of Life Index

S. Puskorius

Abstract—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”.

Index Terms—Indicators, integral quality of life index, mathematical models, quality of life index.
