This work offers the results of a meeting held at the Applied Psychology Center of Kent State University in 1987 to examine current methods and future proposals in the assessment of what family, social and work factors contribute to the health of people and communities. Amongst the topics covered are how to assess quality of life, family behaviour with regard to health, the assessment of health risks associated with work and how the physical environment affects children's health.
