Sažetak

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. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Kvaliteta života u Europi: Utjecaj krize - Izvršni sažetak

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Što određuje zadovoljstvo životom, sreću, kako vrednujemo naše društveno stanje i neposrednu okolinu te kako se to promijenilo s gospodarskom krizom? U trećem Europskom istraživanju o kvaliteti života ispitano je 35 000 Europljana u svim državama članicama. Ovo izvješće predstavlja pokazatelje i trendove te ukazuje da je utjecaj recesije vidljiv i mjerljiv. Dok se razine sveukupnog zadovoljstva životom nisu mnogo promijenile, optimizam glede budućnosti i povjerenje u institucije znatno su opali u zemljama najviše pogođenim krizom. Skupine koje su već bile osjetljive – dugotrajno nezaposleni, starije osobe u srednjoj i istočnoj Europi te samohrani roditelji – navode najviše razine materijalne oskudice i nezadovoljstva životnim stanjem.
