The validity of the instrument and its reliability were confirmed by Cronbach's alpha greater than 0.70. The statistical population of the study consists of 11545 citizens living in informal settlements in Miandoab. The sample size was determined based on Cochran's formula, 313 people. The test results show that four indicators of social, economic, physical and environmental quality of life in informal settlements of Miandoab were significant at a level of less than 0.05. Examination of the direction of significance indicates the inappropriateness of the indicators. The ANOVA test also confirmed that the 10 neighborhoods studied in terms of social, physical and environmental indicators are significantly different at the level of less than 0.05, but in the field of economic indicators (significance level equal to 0.094) there are the same conditions.
