The Quality of Life in the United States. 1970 Index, Rating, and Statistics.
Liu, Ben-Chieh; And Others
Growing attention to the social, economic, political, and environmental health of the nation has precipitated a serarch for indicators other than material wealth which adequately reflect the quality of life in the United States and the well-being of its citizens. Nine indicators (Individual Status, Individual Equality, Living Conditions, Agriculture, Technology, Economic Status, Education, Health and Welfare, State and Local Government), based primarily on criteria developed by former President Eisenhower's Commission on National Goals, provide the framework for this quality of life (QOL) assessment. Results of the study provide a comparative picture of conditions in each state in 1970. An appendix presents in tabular form all composite statistics used to construct the weighted indexes of the quality of life together with notation of the data sources from which original raw data were obtained.
