Abstract

This paper analyzes the quality of life over time in the U.S. In this paper we propose a statistical cluster analysis method based on an informationbased measure. This method is then employed to cluster diverse attributes of the quality of life. Aggregate annual measures of welfare are computed for the U.S. for the period from 1915 to 1987.
