We define quality-of-life issues as any that impact a person's perception of his/her overall life quality.   One such example is work-family balance...   [O]ther issues might include states of being (e.g., satisfaction and balance in various life domains, physical and mental health, and well-being), having resources (e.g. time, money), and doing activities (e.g. work, recreation and leisure, service to others).
