Abstract


There are some major issues to be clarified about the quality of life in Albania. The standard of living as reflected by GDP and GDP per capita do not give the full picture of the quality of life in Albania. The indicators of standard of living given by GDP and GDP / capita do not show the real quality of life. The purpose of this research is to identify the problems about defining quality of life through accounting and to improve the reliability of parameters to be used. The methods used in the research are gathering figures, information, data, comparison of data with other countries, revealing results, giving recommendations. The main conclusion of the research is that in Albania most of the indicators of quality of life are not reliable and cannot be used to draw conclusions about the quality of life index. Citizens’ level of education about the quality of life is low. Improving the quality of life is the basic and a major goal for a real guarantee on Albania’s integration into regional, European and wider structures.
