Is quality of life improving in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia? Has the crisis worsened the particularly low baseline revealed by the second European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS)? This report shows the positive progress made in the country over the period 2007–2012 in several aspects of life quality. Major improvements relate to living conditions, health, quality of public services, well-being and satisfaction levels in general. Nevertheless, there is still evidence of high material deprivation, low housing quality and low quality of the environment.
