Objective: This study has compared the quality of life of head-of-household women supported by Welfare Organization those who had service jobs in Tehran, 1386 (2007). Method: It was a cross-sectional study. One-hundred and twenty head-ofhousehold women that were supported by Welfare Organization and their counterparts with service jobs were randomly selected. To collect data, a demographic checklist and WHO’s Quality of Life questionnaire (WHOQOL- 100) were used. Findings: Having job was found to increase quality of life of head-of-household women. The physical health, psychological health, and social relationships had direct influences on quality of life of head-of-household women, while the environment hadn’t have any relation with quality of life. Conclusion: Quality of life among head-of-household women is better when they had a service job, rather than being supported by Welfare Organization.
