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.

    Lebensqualität in Europa – Qualität der Gesellschaft und der öffentlichen Dienste

    Autor(en): 
    Eurofound
    Dieser Bericht untersucht anhand von Erkenntnissen aus der dritten Europäischen Erhebung zur Lebensqualität, in welchem Maße die Europäer mit verschiedenen Aspekten der Gesellschaft – hinsichtlich öffentlicher Dienste und sozialer Beziehungen – zufrieden sind und wie sich diese auf ihr Wohlbefinden auswirken. Ferner werden die Ergebnisse der Erhebung mit denen von 2007 verglichen, um zu ermitteln, wie die Wirtschaftskrise die Qualität der Gesellschaft beeinflusst hat. Die Lebensqualität hängt zum Teil von der Verfügbarkeit qualitativ hochwertiger öffentlicher Dienste wie Gesundheitsversorgung, Bildungseinrichtungen und sozialen Betreuungsdiensten ab. Ebenso prägend für die Lebensqualität und die Qualität der Gesellschaft sind auch soziale Beziehungen – fehlende Spannungen, Gleichstellung sozialer Gruppen und das Gefühl des zwischenmenschlichen Vertrauens.
