Abstract

This study aimed to test a new measure of Older People�s QoL (OPQOL), which is unique in being derived from the views of older people who responded to an earlier survey, funded by the ESRC Growing Older Programme. Here we report the final testing of the OPQOL, and compare it with two existing measures of QoL in older age: the CASP-19 and WHOQOL-OLD.
