Short Scientific Article:


Objectives: Since quality of life, happiness and life satisfaction are regarded as indices of general and mental health, this research evaluates the correlation between quality of life and self-esteem among students.

Method: The present study was a survey research in which 200 Isfahan University Students (100 females and 100 males) were evaluated. To measure quality of life and self esteem, Missoula-Vitas Quality of Life Index (MVQOLI) and Rabson’s Self-esteem Questionnaire were used respectively. Data were analyzed using t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient, and regression analysis.

Results: Results indicate a significant relationship between self-esteem and quality of life (r=0.48), but there was no significant difference between the quality of life of male and female students of Isfahan University. Also, even though there was a significant statistical relationship between each of the five factors of quality of life and self-esteem, regression analysis showed that the factors of interpersonal relationship, transcendence and function had the highest predictive power of self-esteem from among the five factors.

Conclusion: There is a correlation between students’ evaluation of their quality of life and their self-esteem.
