The standard of living is closely related to quality of life. The main idea of a 'standard' may be contrasted with the quality of life, which takes into account not only the material standard of living, but also other more intangible aspects that make up human life, such as leisure, safety, cultural resources, social life, physical health, environmental quality issues etc.
Quality of life should not be confused with the concept of standard of living, which is based primarily on income.
