Abstract
In this article the method of constructing the integral indicator of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) as a multidimensional and heterogeneous system is offered. This method is based on the combined application of the hierarchy analysis method (HAM) and the enclosed linear convolution linear convolution. The structural model of HRQoL is constructed using a standardized Russian version of the MOS SF-36 health survey. The enclosed linear convolution allows transforming vector indicators of the vector scores of HRQoL scales to single average index which after rationing is considered as an integral indicator. The main problem of choosing the weighting coefficients for the enclosed linear convolution of the vector scores of HRQoL scales is solved using the HAM. This method allows researchers to convert the qualitative characteristics of the structural model of HRQoL into quantitative ones. The received results can be used for integral assessment of HRQoL of the individual as object of management in health care and social policy for decision making on its improvement.
