This report explores how Europeans perceive the quality of their societies, and of their public services. It looks at such aspects of society as trust in institutions and other people, perceived tensions between social groups, attitudes towards migrants and the effects of the economic crisis on social inclusion and social cohesion. It finds that satisfaction with the economic situation of one’s country, not being in employment and overall life satisfaction appear to boost satisfaction with public services; hardship appears to reduce it. In societal terms, trust in institutions decreased visibly from 2007 to 2011. Trust in people however changed less than trust in institutions and is more similar across the EU. A positive relationship exists between trust in institutions and satisfaction with the economic situation of one’s own country; a negative relationship between trust in institutions and inequality. And tensions were perceived to be highest between different racial and ethnic groups and between rich and poor. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Kvalita života v Evropě – kvalita společnosti a veřejných služeb

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Tato zpráva využívá zjištění třetího průzkumu kvality života v Evropě. Zkoumá, do jaké míry jsou Evropané spokojeni s různými aspekty společnosti (z hlediska veřejných služeb a sociálních vztahů) a jak tyto aspekty ovlivňují jejich pohodu. Zpráva také srovnává aktuální zjištění s výsledky získanými v roce 2007 s cílem zhodnotit, jak hospodářská krize ovlivnila kvalitu společnosti. Kvalita života částečně závisí na dostupnosti kvalitních veřejných služeb, jako je zdravotnictví, školství a sociální péče. A kvalitu života a společnosti utvářejí i sociální vztahy: neexistence napětí, rovnost mezi sociálními skupinami a pocit důvěry mezi lidmi.
