Résumé

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.

    Qualité de vie en Europe: tendances de 2003 à 2012

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Eurofound a réalisé l’enquête européenne sur la qualité de vie (EQLS) en 2003, 2007 et 2011. Le présent rapport compare les résultats des trois enquêtes afin de prouver l’existence de tendances et de changements dans la qualité de vie des citoyens européens au cours des dix dernières années. Il analyse également si les différences entre les États membres de l’Union européenne ont diminué ou sont restées stables. Il résulte notamment du rapport que le bien-être subjectif est stable dans l’ensemble de l’Union européenne, tandis que les ménages connaissent des niveaux plus élevés de détresse financière sous l’effet de la crise financière. Le rapport propose l’adoption d’une approche plus active en ce qui concerne la protection sociale, dans la mesure où la diminution du revenu des ménages a une influence fortement négative sur la qualité de vie, notamment en période de crise économique.
