Abstract:

This study attempted to evaluate the quality of life of Muslim traders in Iloilo City. They have traded in this city and resided in its vicinity for several years after migrating from Lanao del Sur when then President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law in 1972. Most of these Muslim traders were Maranaos who fled and found their way to the peaceful city of Iloilo. The Quality of Life index by Ferrans and Powers (1984 & 1998) was used as a guide to assess the present condition of the quality of life of Muslim traders for the year 2014-2015. The questionnaire measures the respondent’s general satisfaction towards different domains of life. A comparison of the weighted mean scores for the overall quality of life and the subdomains grouped according to gender, tribe and type of business was done. Results revealed that the weighted mean scores for the overall quality of life including all the subdomains were above 15 indicating that Muslim traders perceived their quality of life as very good. These Muslim traders have accepted their present condition in life, specifically the quality of their health and functioning, socio-economic, psychological and spiritual, and family conditions.
