    Article - En anglais

    The research presented here aimed to obtain population norms on pertinent domains of quality of life and health related quality of life, and the relative importance of these domains to people.

    The OPCS Omnibus Survey was used as the vehicle for the study.

    This is a monthly survey of a random sample of 2000 adult members of the population in Great Britain, based on a random sample of households.

    The data was collected for a one month period.

    The response rate to the survey was 77%. In response to a generic question about the five (priority ordered) most important things in their lives (good or bad), respondents were most likely to freely mention as the first most important thing in their lives relationships with family or relatives, followed by their own health, the health of another (close) person and finances/standard of living/housing.

    When responses relating to respondents'priority ranked areas 1-5 were combined, the most frequently mentioned area of life was finances/standard of living/housing, followed by relationships with family and friends, own health, the health of close others and social life/leisure activities.

    When the responses relating to respondents'priority ranks 1-5 were combined, the most frequently mentioned area of life affected was ability to get out and about/s.
