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.

    Elukvaliteet Euroopas: kriisi mõju - Kommenteeritud kokkuvõte

    Autor(id): 
    Eurofound
    Mis määrab ära selle, kui rahul me eluga oleme, kui õnnelikud oleme, kuidas näeme oma sotsiaalset olukorda ja vahetut ümbrust, ning kuidas majanduskriis on seda kõike muutnud? Euroopa elukvaliteedi kolmanda uuringu jaoks intervjueeriti 35 000 eurooplast kõikidest liikmesriikidest. Käesolevas ülevaatlikus aruandes esitatakse tulemused ja suundumused ning see näitab, et majanduslanguse mõju on tõepoolest märgatav ja mõõdetav. Kuigi üldiselt ei ole eluga rahulolu väga palju muutunud, on majanduskriisist kõige enam mõjutatud riikides märkimisväärselt vähenenud optimism tuleviku suhtes ning usaldus institutsioonide vastu. Eelkõige juba enne kriisi haavatavas olukorras olnud rühmad – pikaajalised töötud, Ida- ja Kesk-Euroopa eakad ning üksikvanemad – teatavad materiaalsest puudusest ja rahulolematusest oma eluga.

  • 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.
