The Göteborg quality of life instrument
has been used to assess the quality of life on a population basis, it was possible to show that the well-being variables were stable over time and that excellent well-being showed a great variation. A high level of well-being was common in variables such as family and housing but more uncommon in variables such as fitness, vision, hearing and memory. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
