Yhteenveto

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. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Elämän laatu Euroopassa: Kehityssuuntia 2003–2012

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Eurofound on toteuttanut Euroopan elämänlaatututkimuksen (EQLS) vuosina 2003, 2007 ja 2011. Tässä raportissa vertaillaan näiden kolmen tutkimuskierroksen tuloksia tarkoituksena saada selville kehityssuuntia ja eurooppalaisten elämän laadun muutoksia kymmenen vuoden aikana. Samalla tutkitaan, ovatko EU:n jäsenvaltioiden väliset erot kaventuneet vai pysyneet ennallaan. Yksi tuloksista on, että subjektiivinen hyvinvointi on säilynyt ennallaan EU:ssa kokonaisuudessaan mutta kotitalouksien toimeentulovaikeudet ovat lisääntyneet talouskriisin ilmettyä. Raportissa ehdotetaan entistä aktiivisempaa suhtautumista sosiaaliseen suojeluun, koska talouden tulojen väheneminen vaikuttaa voimakkaan kielteisesti elämän laatuun, varsinkin talouden laskusuuntauksessa.
