While participants in the statewide Arizona Indicators Panel believe their quality of life is good, their outlooks show a lot of variety, for not everyone reports such positive views. Opinions differ significantly depending upon geographic location, racial/ethnic background, age, income, education, and other variables.

  • 73% of Arizonans believe the quality of life where they live is excellent or good.
  • 74% believe their personal quality of live is excellent or good.
  • People over 60 and those with more education and affluence give quality of life the greatest ratings. Those in the majority population and retirees also gave QOL the thumbs up much more than minorities, workers, and non-workers.
