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.

    Квалитет на животот во Европа – Квалитет на општеството и јавните услуги

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Извештајов користи наоди од третото Истражување за квалитетот на животот во Европа за да утврди до кој степен Европејците се задоволни со различни аспекти на општеството – во поглед на јавните услуги и социјалните односи – и како влијаат тие на нивната благосостојба. Исто така, ги споредува наодите со тие од 2007 година за да измери на кој начин економската криза го погоди квалитетот на општеството. Квалитетот на животот делумно зависи од достапноста на јавните услуги со добар квалитет, како што се здравјето, образованието и социјалната грижа. И квалитетот на животот и квалитетот на општеството се, исто така, засегнати од социјалните односи: отсуство на тензија, еднаквост меѓу социјалните групи и чувство на доверба меѓу луѓето.
