Sažetak

This report examines social inequalities in the distribution of freedoms and opportunities among individuals and population subgroups in Europe. Using data from the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS), the report builds up an evidence base on social inequalities in four critical areas of life: health, standard of living, productive and valued activities, and individual, family and social life. It examines the role of important determinants of social inequalities including gender, age, disability status, employment status and citizenship status, as well as other drivers. The report finds that, in some instances, there is evidence of disadvantages becoming more prevalent and social inequalities widening between the second wave of the EQLS in 2007 and the third wave in 2011. It recommends that growing policy attention to the multidimensional aspects of well-being be coupled with effective public action to address social inequalities and integrated into general policies at the European and Member State levels.

    Kvaliteta života u Europi: društvene nejednakosti

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ovo izvješće istražuje društvene nejednakosti u raspodjeli sloboda i mogućnosti među pojedincima i podskupinama stanovništva u Europi. Koristeći podatke Europskog istraživanja o kvaliteti života (EQLS), izvješće gradi bazu dokaza o društvenim nejednakostima u četiri kritična područja života: zdravlje, standard života, produktivne i cijenjene aktivnosti te pojedinačan, obiteljski i društveni život. Istražuje ulogu važnih odrednica društvenih nejednakosti uključujući rod, dob, status invalidnosti, status zaposlenosti i status državljanstva, ali i druge pokretače. Izvješće zaključuje da u nekim slučajevima postoje dokazi o tome da nepovoljan položaj postaje predominantan i da se društvene nejednakosti šire između drugog vala EQLS-a u 2007. i trećeg vala u 2011. Preporuča se da se sve veća pažnja politika multidimenzionalnim aspektima dobrobiti udruži s učinkovitim javnim djelovanjem čime bi se rješavale društvene nejednakosti te iste integrirale u opće politike na razini Europe i država članica.
