Abstract

Quality of life is one of the important factors in evaluating health problems in different societies. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-analytic study 700 individuals aged 15 to 64, were selected through the random sampling method in Kurdistan, western part of Iran, in 2007 and their quality of life was evaluated by Euro His questionnaire. Data was analyzed by SPSS software using independent t, ANOVA, Pearson correlation and multi-variable regression tests. Results: In this study, quality of life in men was significantly better than women (P=0.001), and in rural regions was better than urban regions (P=0.01). People with more exercise activities had better quality of life (P=0.002), while the smokers (P<0.05) and also the elder people had worse quality of life (P<0.001, r= -0.197); the heavier (P=0.01, r=0.095) and the taller ones had better quality of life (P<0.001, r= 0.193). Uneducated people had lower quality of life (P<0.001, F=13.246), while more income was leading to higher quality of life (P<0.001, F=13.814). Conclusion: Between adults of Kurdistan, western part of Iran, quality of life was worse significantly in women, elder people, people with lack of exercise and with smoking habit.
