Abstract

BLAY, Sergio Luís  and  MARCHESONI, Marina Sthal Merlin. Association among physical, psychiatric and socioeconomic conditions and WHOQOL-Bref scores. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.4, pp.677-686. ISSN 1678-4464.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2011000400007.

The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of psychiatric morbidity, depression, cognitive deficit, number of self-reported illnesses and socio-demographic variables on the WHOQOL-Bref domain scores. WHOQOL-Bref domain scores are substantially affected by psychiatric morbidity and income. Depression, the number of self-reported illnesses and the female gender also explain the variability of other domains to a lesser extent.

Keywords : Quality of Life; Depression; Comorbidity.
