Source, Method, and Surmise: Quality of Life in History
Jordan, Thomas E.
Social Indicators Research, v94 n2 p227-239 Nov 2009
The purpose of the essay is to demonstrate that study of quality of life can explore eras before our own. There are caches of social data as early as the seventeenth century, and there were people who attempted to formulate social circumstances close to today's concepts of quality of life. Data from England and Ireland are presented and analyzed.
