Kopsavilkums

This report explores how Europeans perceive the quality of their societies, and of their public services. It looks at such aspects of society as trust in institutions and other people, perceived tensions between social groups, attitudes towards migrants and the effects of the economic crisis on social inclusion and social cohesion. It finds that satisfaction with the economic situation of one’s country, not being in employment and overall life satisfaction appear to boost satisfaction with public services; hardship appears to reduce it. In societal terms, trust in institutions decreased visibly from 2007 to 2011. Trust in people however changed less than trust in institutions and is more similar across the EU. A positive relationship exists between trust in institutions and satisfaction with the economic situation of one’s own country; a negative relationship between trust in institutions and inequality. And tensions were perceived to be highest between different racial and ethnic groups and between rich and poor. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Dzīves kvalitāte Eiropā — sabiedrības un sabiedrisko pakalpojumu kvalitāte

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Šajā pārskatā ir izmantoti konstatējumi no trešā Eiropas dzīves kvalitātes apsekojuma, lai analizētu, kādā mērā eiropieši ir apmierināti ar dažādiem sabiedrības aspektiem — attiecībā uz sabiedriskajiem pakalpojumiem un sociālajām attiecībām — un kā tie ietekmē viņu labsajūtu. Pārskatā šie konstatējumi arī salīdzināti ar 2007. gada konstatējumiem, lai novērtētu, kā sabiedrības kvalitāti ietekmējusi ekonomiskā krīze. Dzīves kvalitāte ir daļēji atkarīga no labas kvalitātes sabiedrisko pakalpojumu, piemēram, veselības aprūpes, izglītības un sociālās aprūpes pieejamības. Un dzīves un sabiedrības kvalitāti nosaka arī sociālās attiecībās: spriedzes neesamība, vienlīdzība sociālo grupu starpā un uzticēšanās sajūta cilvēku starpā.
