ABSTRACT

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted during 2010, in 5 936 people aged 15 years and over as a representative sample of the country, with several stage cluster sampling, in order to determine the quality of life related to health in the urban population from Cuba. The sociodemographic variables used were age, sex and skin color, and those of the generic questionnaire EuroQol: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression. Most of people had mobility, selfcare and usual activities preserved. It is concluded that male mestizos younger than 45 years showed a higher quality of life related to health and the questionnaire can be valid to describe this indicator in that population.


Key words: quality of life on health, generic questionnaire, EuroQol, urban population, national survey of risk factors.
