Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional research, 918 families were selected among different counties of Ilam Province by multi-stage clustering sampling. The data collection instrument was a questionnaire used to measure the general economic and quality of life: the SF-36 health status questionnaire. Data were analyzed using multivariate regression models. Results: The mean age of the study participants was 32.97 +/- 9.5 years, and the mean score for their quality of life was 61.74 +/- 12.31. There was a significant statistical relationship between people's quality of life and their marital status, province of residency, income, economic situation, and life satisfaction (P < 0.05). Also, there was a significant and inverse correlation between people's age and quality of life (r = 0.21), physical health summary (r = 0.21) and mental health summary (r = 0.08).
