Concern about the quality of life and its measurement is probably greater now than ever before. The last five years have seen considerable changes in policy, particularly in health and social service markets bringing into question appropriate measures of input and output. The issues addressed in this volume range from the philosophical question of what the good life is, to detailed studies of what constitutes a good quality of life for particular client groups. Quality of Life will be valuable reading for researchers and practitioners in social policy, social work and economics.
