Abstract
In Hainan Province, there are nearly 1/10 scattered minority groups in the total population. The scattered minority groups in our province are mainly distributed in backward and remote areas, and the overall quality of life is poor. Therefore, we should know the quality of life of the scattered minorities in Hainan Province under the background of targeted poverty alleviation, explore the major factor affecting the quality of life, and formulate relevant policies to improve the quality of life of the scattered minorities in our province and protect the rights and interests of the scattered minorities. According to the brief form of quality of life of WHO (WHOQOL-BREF), the paper carried out investigation and questionnaire from four aspects, including the physical and psychological fields, social relations and environment. The Statistic Package for Social Science (SPSS) is used to analyze the four fields in quality of life and correlation with income factors. According to the survey, 232 scattered ethnic minorities were randomly selected. Among them, 136 people were living in poverty. The proportion of the poor population in the total survey population is 58.87%. Income is the main factor affecting the quality of life of the scattered minorities in our province. The scores of them in the four fields respectively are 60.76 + 10.88 (physiological field), 67.24 + 13.55 (psychological field), 70.50 + 14.02 (social relations) and 68.7 + 14.91 (environment), which are relative low.
