Measuring health-related quality of life for public health surveillance.
In public health research and practice, quality of life is increasingly acknowledged as a valid and appropriate indicator of service need and intervention outcomes.
Health-related quality of life measures, including objective and subjective assessments of health, are particularly useful for evaluating efforts in the prevention of disabling chronic diseases.
Such data can inform health policy, planning, and practice.
Mechanisms for routinely monitoring quality of life of populations at the State and local levels are currently lacking, however.
