Monitoring quality of life is a decisive factor in establishment of social development priorities. The health condition of inhabitants is the most important indicator of quality of life. There are close relationships between the health of population, quality of life and positive development: the healthier and more educated a human being is the higher is the probability of better quality of life. Poor, uneducated and ill populations have little hope for a worthy life. On the other hand improvement of quality of life caused by economic and educational development is related to improvement of a health condition of an individual and the society. Many reports are available on a decisive role of sociological factors in term of health. The aim of this article is to quantify the latest available data on the relationship between psychosocial and psychoeconomic factors and the length of life in Europe.
