Abstract

This study examined the factorial structure of the World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire-Brief Version in a community sample of Canadians with spinal cord injuries. A confirmatory factor analysis provides evidence that the instrument is a multidimensional measure of quality of life. Additionally, the questionnaire is correlated in the predicted directions with education, income, time since injury, self-esteem, and acceptance of disability. Implications of its use in rehabilitation counseling practice and research are discussed.
