The WHOQoL-100 assesses individuals' perception of their position in life in the context of the culture and value systems in which they live and in relation to their goals, expectations, standards and concerns.
An abbreviated 26-item instrument, the WHOQoL-Bréf has been developed. This shorter version is more convenient for researchers who are conducting large research studies or clinical trials.
The WHOQol-8 contains eight items that were empirically derived from the WHOQOL-Bref. As yet no scoring algorithm has been published, although a summative model is most likely, producing an index. The other possibility is that each item is scored separately.
CA-WHOQoL-100 (currently unavailable)
The CA-WHOQoL-100 comprises a translated version of each WHOQoL-100 item, plus additional items relevant to the Chinese-Australian community. The response scales for all items were derived specifically for this instrument using a Chinese-Australian sample.
WHOQoL-OLD (currently unavailable)
The WHOQoL-OLD is a new instrument that is currently being developed and will become available in the near future. If you would like more information about this instrument, please contact the Australian WHOQoL Field Centre.
WHOQoL-AA (currently unavailable)
The WHOQoL Attitudes to Ageing is currently being developed and will become available in the near future. If you would like more information about this instrument, please contact the Australian WHOQoL Field Centre.

The WHOQoL User manual and interpretation guide, including the Australian Population Norms. It facilitates administration, scoring and interpretation of the Australian versions of the WHOQOL-100 and the WHOQOL-Bréf. It contains information regarding the development of the WHOQOL instruments, both at an international and national level, details of the psychometric properties of the instruments, and guidelines for administration, scoring and interpretation, together with copies of the Australian WHOQOL instruments. It is specific to the Australian versions of the WHOQOL, including both the English versions (the Australian WHOQOL-100 and the Australian WHOQOL-Bréf) and Chinese-Australian version (the CA-WHOQOL-100).
