The aim of this study was to examine the possible differences in self-reported quality of life of people with physical disabilities
with regard to both socio-demographic and disability-related characteristics. Testing was conducted on 153 respondents
with physical disabilities, residents of the City of Zagreb. Positive correlations were found between the quality
of life and income satisfaction, residence size (per capita floor area) and level of residence equipment. Multivariate analysis
of variance showed statistically significant differences in quality of life among respondents with regard to the marital
status, work status and home ownership. Statistically significant differences in the quality of life were found among the
participants depending on their level of physical mobility and type of physical disability. The level of physical mobility is
associated with general satisfaction with the accomplishment of goals, aspirations and hopes. The type of physical disability
is related to the satisfaction with leisure activities, with the material status, expectations to achieve in the future
what has not formerly been achieved. There was also a significant relation between the type of physical disability and
general satisfaction with life in the past year. Positive correlations between duration of disability and quality of life were
found. Membership in associations of persons with physical disability and related benefits were shown to contribute to
the quality of life.
