How AQoL scores were calculated

AQoL scores were obtained from a survey of the Australian population who were asked to evaluate a large number of AQoL health states. This means that your score depended upon your answers but also on the opinions of the people surveyed. It should be remembered that your own personal judgments may not be the same as the judgement of our survey respondents.

If you are interested in how the AQoL was created visit the AQoL website which provides references to the academic literature which describes the creation of the four AQoL instruments.
