Abstract


Background: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) assessment and the determinants affecting it in the general population are essential to determine its needs and expectations. This work aims to evaluate the effect of educational level and marital status on HRQOL.

They was married people who express better HRQOL followed by singles, however divorced and especially widowed people had a bad perception of it. Conclusion: They was illiterate people, divorced and widowed people who perceive themselves in poor health and have a bad perception of HRQOL.
