Περίληψη

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.

    Ποιότητα ζωής στην Ευρώπη – Ποιότητα της κοινωνίας και δημόσιες υπηρεσίες

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Η παρούσα έκθεση βασίζεται στα πορίσματα της τρίτης ευρωπαϊκής έρευνας για την ποιότητα ζωής προκειμένου να διερευνήσει τον βαθμό ικανοποίησης των Ευρωπαίων από διάφορες πτυχές της κοινωνίας –όσον αφορά τις δημόσιες υπηρεσίες και τις κοινωνικές σχέσεις– και τον τρόπο με τον οποίο αυτές επηρεάζουν την ευημερία τους. Συγκρίνει επίσης τα πορίσματα με τα αντίστοιχα της έρευνας του 2007 προκειμένου να διαπιστωθεί με ποιον τρόπο έχει επηρεάσει η οικονομική κρίση την ποιότητα της κοινωνίας. Η ποιότητα ζωής εξαρτάται εν μέρει από τον βαθμό στον οποίο παρέχονται καλής ποιότητας δημόσιες υπηρεσίες, όπως η υγεία, η παιδεία και η κοινωνική μέριμνα. Η ποιότητα ζωής διαμορφώνεται, τέλος, και από τις κοινωνικές σχέσεις. Θετικά ως προς αυτό λειτουργούν η απουσία εντάσεων, η ισότητα μεταξύ διαφόρων κοινωνικών ομάδων και το αίσθημα της εμπιστοσύνης μεταξύ των ανθρώπων.
