Resumé

Eurofound has conducted the European Quality of Life Survey EQLS) in 2003, 2007 and 2011. This report compares the results from the three waves to provide evidence of trends and change in the quality of life of Europeans over a decade. It also examines whether differences across EU Member States have narrowed or remained stable. One of its findings is that subjective well-being has remained stable across the EU as whole, but it also finds that financial strain in households has grown in the wake of the economic crisis. The report proposes a more active approach to social protection, as lower household income is a strong negative influence on quality of life, and especially so in an economic downturn. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Livskvalitet i Europa: Tendenser 2003–2012

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Eurofound har gennemført den europæiske undersøgelse af livskvalitet i 2003, 2007 og 2011. I denne rapport sammenholdes resultaterne fra de tre undersøgelsesrunder for at dokumentere tendenser og ændringer i europæernes livskvalitet over et årti. Den ser også nærmere på, hvorvidt forskellene mellem EU's medlemsstater er indsnævret eller har stabiliseret sig. En af konklusionerne er, at opfattelsen af subjektiv velfærd har stabiliseret sig i EU som helhed, men det konkluderes også, at det økonomiske pres på husholdningerne er steget i kølvandet af den økonomiske krise. Der foreslås i rapporten en mere aktiv tilgang til social beskyttelse, idet en lavere husstandsindkomst har en stærkt negativ indflydelse på livskvaliteten, hvilket navnlig er tilfældet i økonomiske nedgangstider.
