This tool has been developed to measure physical activities, social relationship, cognitive aging, leisure activities and health behaviours. The objective of the study is to Develop, Test of Construct validity and reliability of (PSCQL-MT) to measure Quality of Life (QoL) in Senior Citizens of Lahore, Pakistan. Temporal stability was measured using the test-retest method. The overall questionnaire score shows an ICC of.86 (p <.001) with a 95% confidence interval (CI)=[.83-.89]. Analyses by dimensions range from a CCI of.72 (p <.001) with a 95% CI=[.66-.76] for the "other leisure activities" dimension to a CCI of.87 (p <.001) with a 95% CI=[.84-.89] for the "social activities" dimension. There was no specific valid questionnaire available in Pakistan to evaluate the individual and overall QoL in Pakistan. For this purpose, a reliable and valid construct questionnaire needs to be developed. This study has developed a tool that can measure 5 major variables which determine the QoL It has been concluded from the study that the development of PSCQL-MT questionnaire and valid tool is a great achievement to carry out research on the QoL in the study population.
