 Life Satisfaction Index

Also called the Life Satisfaction Ratings (LSR), the Life Satisfaction Index is designed to measure well-being and successful ageing among adults over the age of 50. It is administered by a health care professional. There are five categories that are rated on a 5-point scale. The estimated time for completing the questionnaire is 10 minutes.
