Quality of Life

Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD) and its partners typically conduct the Quality of Life (QoL) Survey every two years. The survey is sent to up to 15,000 households in Spokane County, and it includes questions about residents’ well-being, lived experiences in their communities, and social determinants of health—that is, the physical, social and economic conditions that affect people’s quality of life and health. Examples of social determinants of health include neighborhood crime and safety, access to healthy foods and health care, positive relationships and support, and the availability of jobs and housing.

To learn more about how and why  SRHD and its partners conducted the survey, key findings, and other frequently asked questions,  see the Quality of Life (QoL) Survey FAQ, updated November 30, 2021.
