Abstract

A otimização da qualidade de vida da população deve ser a função objetivo de todo governo. A melhoria da qualidade de vida possui papel primordial no desenvolvimento de um país, estado ou município. Assim, é interessante a formulação de um indicador que quantifique o desenvolvimento alcançado por uma sociedade, utilizando uma quantidade de variáveis de forma que se consiga captar maiores informações sobre essa sociedade, para que formuladores de políticas públicas tenham melhores subsídios na elaboração de medidas que permitam aumentar o próprio grau de desenvolvimento. Dessa forma, esta pesquisa objetiva construir o Índice Relativo de Qualidade de Vida (IRQV) para os municípios do Estado do Amazonas. Os resultados indicam que os municípios apresentam uma heterogeneidade em relação à qualidade de vida. Claramente, observou-se que os municípios dentro das microrregiões de Manaus e do Rio Preto da Eva apresentam os melhores resultados para o IRQV, e segundo a presente pesquisa, são os melhores municípios para se viver no Amazonas. As microrregiões de Boca do Acre, Juruá e Purus foram as que apresentaram os piores resultados para o IRQV nos municípios. --------------------------------------------The optimization of the quality of life of the population should be the goal of every government function. The improvement of the quality of life has primary role in the development of a country, state or municipality. Thus, it is interesting to the formulation of an indicator to quantify the development achieved by a company, using a number of variables so that we succeed capture more information about this company, so that policy makers have better public subsidies in drafting measures to increase your own level of development. Thus, this research aims to build the Index Relating to Quality of Life (IRQV) to the municipalities of the state of Amazonas. The results indicate that the municipalities have heterogeneity in relation to the quality of life. Clearly, it was observed that the municipalities within the microrregiões of Manaus and Rio Preto, Eva have the best results for the IRQV, and according to this poll, are the best counties to live in the Amazon. The microrregiões of Boca do Acre, Juruá and Purus were those that had the worst results for the IRQV in municipalities.
