Nearly 37,000 people in 33 European countries (28 EU Member States and 5 candidate countries) were interviewed in the last quarter of 2016 for the fourth wave of the European Quality of Life Survey. This overview report presents the findings for the EU Member States. It uses information from previous survey rounds, as well as other research, to look at trends in quality of life against a background of the changing social and economic profile of European societies. Ten years after the global economic crisis, it examines well-being and quality of life broadly, to include quality of society and public services. The findings indicate that differences between countries on many aspects are still prevalent – but with more nuanced narratives. Each Member State exhibits certain strengths in particular aspects of well-being, but multiple disadvantages are still more pronounced in some societies than in others; and in all countries significant social inequalities persist.

    Encuesta europea sobre calidad de vida 2016

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Durante el último trimestre de 2016, se entrevistó a cerca de 37 000 personas en 33 países europeos (28 Estados miembros de la Unión y 5 países candidatos) para la cuarta ronda de la encuesta europea sobre calidad de vida. Este informe sinóptico presenta las conclusiones en lo que concierne a los Estados miembros de la Unión Europea. La encuesta se sirve de la información obtenida en las rondas anteriores y en otros estudios para examinar las tendencias de la calidad de vida y compararlas con la evolución del perfil social y económico de las sociedades europeas. Diez años después de la crisis económica global, se examina el bienestar y la calidad de vida de forma amplia, a fin de incluir la calidad de la sociedad y los servicios públicos. Los hallazgos indican que las diferencias entre países siguen prevaleciendo en múltiples aspectos, pero con narrativas más matizadas. Cada Estado miembro exhibe ciertas fortalezas en aspectos particulares del bienestar, pero muchas de las desventajas siguen siendo más pronunciadas en algunas sociedades que en otras; y en todos los países persisten importantes desigualdades sociales.

Part of the series

  • European Quality of Life Survey 2016

    Eurofound's European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) examines both the objective circumstances of European citizens' lives and how they feel about those circumstances and their lives in general. This series consists of outputs from the EQLS 2016, the fourth edition of the survey. The survey was first carried out in 2003. 

  • 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.
