Quality of life (QOL) is a broad and multifaceted concept. No single discipline can deal effectively with questions about quality of life (Hill et al. in The quality of life in America: Pollution, poverty, power and fear. Holt, Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1973). It has been studied by a range of disciplines such as sociology, geography, economics, planning, psychology, and public health, among others.
