Sommario

Nearly 37,000 people in 33 European countries (28 EU Member States and 5 candidate countries) were interviewed in the last quarter of 2016 for the fourth wave of the European Quality of Life Survey. This overview report presents the findings for the EU Member States. It uses information from previous survey rounds, as well as other research, to look at trends in quality of life against a background of the changing social and economic profile of European societies. Ten years after the global economic crisis, it examines well-being and quality of life broadly, to include quality of society and public services. The findings indicate that differences between countries on many aspects are still prevalent – but with more nuanced narratives. Each Member State exhibits certain strengths in particular aspects of well-being, but multiple disadvantages are still more pronounced in some societies than in others; and in all countries significant social inequalities persist.

    Indagine europea sulla qualità della vita 2016

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Quasi 37 000 persone in 33 paesi europei (28 Stati membri dell’UE e cinque paesi candidati) sono state intervistate nell’ultimo trimestre del 2016 per la quarta indagine europea sulla qualità della vita. La relazione di sintesi presenta i risultati relativi agli Stati membri dell’UE e utilizza informazioni tratte dalle indagini precedenti e da altre ricerche per osservare gli andamenti della qualità della vita nel contesto della situazione sociale ed economica in mutamento delle società europee. Dieci anni dopo la crisi economica globale, esamina il benessere e la qualità della vita in senso ampio, includendo la qualità della società e dei servizi pubblici. I risultati indicano che sotto molti aspetti sono ancora evidenti differenze tra i paesi, pur se in forma più sfumata. Ogni Stato membro presenta alcuni punti di forza in aspetti particolari del benessere, ma molteplici svantaggi sono ancora più marcati in alcune società rispetto ad altre e in tutti i paesi persistono notevoli disuguaglianze sociali.
