What determines life satisfaction and happiness? How do we value our social situation and immediate surroundings? How has this changed with the economic crisis? For the third wave of the European Quality of Life survey, 35,500 Europeans in all EU Member States were interviewed, in an effort to gain insights to these questions. This overview report presents findings and trends and shows that the impacts of the recession are indeed noticeable and measurable in some areas, while in others there are more long-term developments to be observed. While overall life satisfaction levels have not changed much, optimism about the future and trust in institutions have declined markedly in those countries most affected by the downturn. And groups that were already vulnerable – the long-term unemployed, older people in central and eastern Europe and single parents – report the highest levels of material deprivation and dissatisfaction with their life situation.

    Calidad de vida en Europa: impactos de la crisis - Resumen ejecutivo

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound
    ¿Qué determina la satisfacción vital, la felicidad, el modo en que valoramos nuestra situación social y nuestro entorno más inmediato, y en qué medida han cambiado estos aspectos con la crisis económica? Para la tercera edición de la Encuesta Europea sobre Calidad de Vida se entrevistó a 35 000 europeos en todos los Estados miembros. Este informe general presenta resultados y tendencias, e indica que la repercusión de la recesión es, desde luego, perceptible y cuantificable. Aunque el nivel de satisfacción con la propia vida no ha variado mucho, el optimismo con respecto al futuro y la confianza en las instituciones se han reducido de manera acusada en los países más afectados por la recesión. Y en los grupos que ya eran vulnerables —los desempleados de larga duración, las personas de más edad en Europa central y oriental, y los padres y madres sin pareja— se observan los niveles más elevados de privaciones materiales e insatisfacción con su situación vital.

    The European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) is carried out every four to five years since its inception in 2003, with the latest edition in 2016. It examines both the objective circumstances of people's lives and how they feel about those circumstances and their lives in general. It covers issues around employment, income, education, housing, family, health and work–life balance.
