Resumen

This report presents an overview of living conditions in the five current EU candidate countries – Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey. It is based on the results of the 2016 European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) and covers three broad areas: quality of life, quality of public services and quality of society. The report consists of an introductory overview chapter and five country profiles. The survey results are relevant both from a national perspective and in the context of the areas addressed in the EU enlargement process. They are also instructive in the broader context of the Sustainable Development Goals, which countries sometimes struggle to assess due to a lack of comprehensive monitoring measures. The EQLS results show that some aspects of quality of life are similar across the candidate countries. On a number of indicators, they score lower than the EU28 average, but the quality of certain public services is ranked relatively high in these countries.

    La vida y la sociedad en los países candidatos a la adhesión a la UE

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    El presente informe ofrece una visión general de las condiciones de vida en los cinco países candidatos a la UE: Albania, Montenegro, Macedonia del Norte, Serbia y Turquía. Se basa en los resultados de la Encuesta europea sobre calidad de vida de 2016 (EQLS) y abarca tres ámbitos generales: calidad de vida, calidad de los servicios públicos y calidad de la sociedad. El informe consta de un capítulo de introducción general y de perfiles de cinco países.

    Los resultados de la encuesta son pertinentes tanto desde un punto de vista nacional como teniendo en cuenta el contexto de los ámbitos que se tratan en el proceso de ampliación de la UE. También resultan instructivos en el marco más amplio de los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible, ya que a veces los países tienen dificultades para evaluarlos debido a la falta de medidas de seguimiento exhaustivas. Los resultados de la EQLS revelan que algunos aspectos de la calidad de vida son similares en todos los países candidatos. En algunos indicadores, alcanzan una puntuación inferior a la media de la EU-28, pero la calidad de determinados servicios públicos ocupa un puesto relativamente alto en estos países.
