Degree of satisfaction with existence; Manner of existence

"How others assess the lives of people with learning disabilities and the understanding which such people have of their own lives"

So: 1. degree of the goodness/badness of a life of several lives; 2. the features of a life or several lives.

Examples: 1. "Badly paid, overworked and confined to faraway communities, Cornish miners had a very poor quality of life." 2. "Education, housing and leisure opportunities are measures of the quality of life."

Good 'nuff?
