Description:

The Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire - Short Form (Q-LES-Q-SF) is a 16 item self-administered questionnaire that captures life satisfaction over the past week. Each question is rated on a 5 point scale from 1 (Very Poor) to 5 (Very Good). Scores from the individual items are added together and reported as percentage maximum possible score. The short-form of the Q-LES-Q-SF is identical to the General Activities subscale of the larger Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire (Q-LES-Q) instrument

Scoring:

The Total Score is reported as percentage maximum possible % Max = Raw-minimum score/maximum score-minimum score. (Raw score minus the minimum possible raw score divided by the maximum possible raw score minus the minimum possible raw score).

If items are left blank the maximum and minimum scores must be modified to reflect the number of items scored.

The 1/3 rule is usually used for excluding subjects who have no scores for 1/3 of the items. At times some investigators may apply more stringent or less stringent rules.

Definition

This is a measure of an individual’s perceived general physical and mental health.

Purpose

Self-perception of current physical and mental health is indicative of a person's current health and future health outcomes. The general assessment of health, in itself, has been shown to be both a solid measure of self-reported health and a powerful predictor of mortality and morbidity.
