Public services are the bedrock of modern society. They impact on people’s everyday lives to a greater or lesser degree: from education and health services to public transport, refuse collection and state pensions. This report explores the interaction between individuals and institutions, analysing to what extent the key social services are responsible for shaping the quality of people’s lives. Drawing on findings from the second European Quality of Life Survey, carried out by Eurofound in 2007 across 28 countries in Europe, the report gives a wideranging picture of the diverse social realities in Europe today. It assesses the multiple influences at work in society – such as access to health services, quality of local environment, racial and ethnic mix, as well as police, legal and political bodies – in the light of individual income, gender and age.

    Den anden europæiske undersøgelse af livskvalitet: Evaluering af kvaliteten af samfundet og offentlige serviceydelser - Sammenfatning

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound
    Et menneskes livskvalitet afhænger ikke kun af individuelle valg og handlinger. Det omgivende samfund og de offentlige servicetilbud har stor indflydelse på, hvordan borgerne opfatter det samfund, de lever i, og på, hvordan de opfatter deres egen livskvalitet. De statslige institutioner påvirker kvaliteten af samfundet ved at udføre kollektive aktioner, som den enkelte borger ikke selv kan udføre, f.eks. vedligeholdelse af skoler, hospitaler og veje. De offentlige politikker skal også sikre, at vand og luft ikke forurenes, og mindske spændinger mellem forskellige sociale grupper. Hvis de offentlige politikker er effektive, og ydelserne er af høj standard, øges kvaliteten af samfundet, og det har en positiv indvirkning på borgernes generelle livskvalitet.
