Abstract
The aim of this study was to assess if the conditions of life and demographic variables are associated with the evaluation of the Quality of life in young people. We applied a survey of demographic data and the instrument WHOQOL-100 to 418 mexican students living in regions with different levels of human and economical development. The results indicate that there is no difference in Perceived Quality of live’s scores when the conditions of community life are considerate. However we find a slight association between monthly family income and Quality of Life. It agrees with others authors regarding the impact of the financial aspects involved, but it is not a determining factor if we considerate the complexity of the evaluation of the Quality of life.
