Abstract: Most of quality of life reported was concerning about quality of life (QoL) patients related to any diseases. This research was aimed at finding out fishermen quality of life construct validity used survey by involving 120 fishermen, in Jakarta. The QoL instrument developed based on theoretical dimensions; physical, economic, social and psychological dimensions which consisted of 24 items. Data analyzed by exploratory factor analysis (EFA). Research results revealed that it was only 20 items were valid and its reliability found .820. It was found that all four dimensions for measuring fishermen QoL, have a significant intercorrelation among them and with QoL. Research result showed empirically that all factors loading where higher than .30 and .50 and QoL instrument tend to be uni-dimensional. Considering those findings, it could be concluded that this instrument was appropriate to be applied in social research deal with fishermen quality of life.
