QUALITY OF LIFE IN TURKISH UNIVERSITY STUDENTS AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO LEVELS OF STATE-TRAIT ANXIETY
The purpose of this study was to determine the quality of life (QOL) of students and to determine the relationship between state-trait anxiety levels and QOL. This research was done with ½ sampling method of 276 students at Erciyes University. The data were gathered via the WHOQOL-100 Quality of Life Scale (WHOQOL Group, 1998) and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Spielberger, Gorsuch, & Lushelle, 1970). The lowest scoring area in our study was the social impression facet. The area scoring highest was the personal belief area. Negative correlations were found between level of state anxiety and physical health, psychological well-being, and level of independence. Positive correlations were found between level of trait anxiety and physical health, psychological well-being, social relationships, environment, overall QOL and general health perceptions.
