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.

    La calidad de vida en Europa. Tendencias 2003-2012

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound
    Eurofound ha realizado la Encuesta Europea sobre Calidad de Vida (EQLS) en 2003, 2007 y 2011. En este informe se comparan los resultados de esas tres oleadas para ofrecer información sobre las tendencias y los cambios en la calidad de vida de los europeos a lo largo de una década. Se examina asimismo si se han reducido o han permanecido estables las diferencias entre los Estados miembros. Una de las conclusiones es que el bienestar subjetivo ha permanecido estable en el conjunto de la UE, aun cuando han aumentado las dificultades financieras de los hogares a raíz de la crisis económica. El informe propone un enfoque más activo de la protección social, dada la fuerte influencia negativa que la reducción de los ingresos de los hogares tiene sobre la calidad de vida, especialmente en épocas de recesión económica.

  • European Quality of Life Surveys

    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. It also looks at subjective topics, such as people's levels of happiness and life satisfaction, and perceptions of the quality of society.
