The paper discusses an innovative approach towards addressing and measuring quality of living environments. It introduces the model which talks about quality of living environments via quality of time spent in user’s daily routine. It examines relationships between characteristic profiles, their activities and the environments they are involved in, analysing three key parameters: time balance, financial balance and time-quality balance. Time balance shows how comfortable the time is offered to the user by his/her living environments. Economic balance is a category which represents user’s incomes and expenses for necessary and optional activities. It represents a financial frame within which the user is flexible to be able to perform its activity in a certain environment. Time-quality balance is the final measure of quality provided with the proposed model. It classifies time spent regarding the activity and the environment in which the activity is taking place as well or badly spent time. Time-quality is expressed by time-quality coefficient KTQ. The model shows whether a segment of population can live in certain area and how comfortable.
