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.

    Il-kwalità tal-ħajja fl-Ewropa: Inugwaljanzi soċjali

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Dan ir-rapport jeżamina l-inugwaljanzi soċjali fit-tqassim tal-libertajiet u l-opportunitajiet fost individwi u sottogruppi tal-popolazzjoni fl-Ewropa. Bl-użu ta’ dejta mill-Istħarriġ Ewropew dwar il-Kwalità tal-ħajja (EQLS), ir-rapport jibni bażi ta’ evidenza dwar inugwaljanzi soċjali f’erba’ oqsma kritiċi tal-ħajja: is-saħħa, standard ta’ għajxien, attivitajiet produttivi u ta’ valur u l-ħajja individwali, familjari u soċjali. Jeżamina ir-rwol importanti ta’ x’jiddetermina inugwaljanzi soċjali, inklużi l-ġeneru, l-età, l-istat ta’ diżabilità, l-istat tal-impjiegi u l-istat taċ-ċittadinanza, kif ukoll motivaturi oħra. Ir-rapport isib li, f’xi każijiet, hemm provi li l-iżvantaġġi jsiru aktar prevalenti u li l-inugwaljanzi soċjali jitwessgħu bejn it-tieni sensiela tal-EQLS fl-2007 u t-tielet sensiela fl-2011. Ir-rapport jirrakkomanda li l-politika dejjem tikber ta’ attenzjoni lill-aspetti multidimensjonali ta’ benessri tingħaqad ma’ azzjoni pubblika effettiva biex tindirizza inugwaljanzi soċjali u tkun integrata f’politiki ġenerali fil-livelli Ewropej u tal-Istati Membri.
