There are a lot of studies in which self-report questionnaires are used, showing that cancer patients do not have a lower quality of life than the normal healthy population.
This seems to be in contrast with the results of studies in which more extensive interviews have been used and to the everyday experience of physicians, nurses and other caretakers.
This phenomenon of underreporting seems to hold true also for other patient groups.
Judgment theories explain how the perception of quality of life arises.
