A theoretical basis for estimating quality of life

Bernhard Bierschenk

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The three basic paradigms of behaviour science, association, structure, and process, were used to anchor the simulation of new forms of social organization. These have been projected by means of a behaviour, a humanist, and a growth model. The Swedish model was also included as a possible point of reference. This article summarizes the results of two experiments, one on the assessment of quality of life and the other on the assessment of dignity. The experimental results were evaluated by means of effect size indices. The results show that the Swedish model preserves quality of life the least, but is best suited for a preservation of dignity.
