Abstract: We develop a general framework for the evaluation of health and productivity of a population of individuals. In such a framework, we characterize Productivity-and-Quality-Adjusted Life Years evaluation functions, which range from the classical Quality-Adjusted Life Years (QALYs) to its polar Productivity-Adjusted Life Years (PALYs). Our frame-work and characterization results provide a new normative basis for the economic evalu-ation of health care or occupational health and safety policies.
