Abstract: Quality of life is a part of development concept which usually used for finding out the Human Development Index (HDI) that was determined by enrollment rate, life expectation, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of each country. The research was aimed at finding out the information about the effect of individual modernity, religiosity, cohesiveness and social support on fishermen’s quality of life. A survey was used by involving 155 fishermen as sample. There were five instruments for measuring, fishermen Quality of Life (18 items, rel .816), individual modernity (17 items rel .845), religiosity (10 items rel .720), cohesiveness (19 items rel .819), and social support (17 items rel .874). Data was analyzed by descriptive statistical analysis, inferential statistics for linearity test and path analysis. Fishermen Quality of Life significantly affected directly by individual modernity. Cohesiveness and social support were also significantly affected directly by individual modernity and religiosity. Moreover, cohesiveness directly significantly affected social support. It was found also that all indirect effect did not significantly affect fishermen Quality of Life. Based on those findings, it can be concluded that it was only individual modernity which should be considered if fishermen Quality of Life would be improved. It can be stated that, considering those findings, individual modernity and religiosity could not be neglected in enhancing fishermen cohesiveness and social support as well.
