Abstract


Resumen:

El objetivo de este estudio fue identificar los indicadores objetivos de la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud en estudiantes de una institución de estudios superiores. Asimismo se contrastó la interdependencia de un factor de afectación de la calidad de vida y de un factor de calidad de vida relacionada con la salud. La muestra estuvo integrada por 91 participantes. Se realizaron frecuencias de medias, desviaciones estándar y modelamiento estructural. Se probó la influencia directa que el factor de la afectación a la calidad de vida (calidad subjetiva) ejerce en el factor de calidad de vida relacionada con la salud (calidad de vida objetiva). Se encontraron los indicadores: vida independiente, salud mental, enfrentamiento, dolor y sensopercepción como indicadores de calidad de vida relacionados con la salud.
