This article discusses the problems of management and measurement of quality of life categories of the population. The characteristic features of models and indicators of quality of life are analyzed (on the example of existing indices). The necessity of applying a system of indicators and criteria for sustainable development is identified and justified. On the basis of the study, the author proposes the use of a formalized description of the quality of life of the population using measurable quantities, special attention is directed to the main indicators that have a common basis and are the projection of the power invariant in a particular private coordinate system (social, economic, environmental).
KEYWORDS: quality of life of the population, standard of living, sustainable development, approaches to assessment of quality of life of the population, models of quality of life.
