Podsumowanie

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.

    Jakość życia w Europie – jakość społeczeństwa i usług publicznych

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Niniejsze sprawozdanie wykorzystuje ustalenia trzeciego Europejskiego badania jakości życia do przedstawienia, w jakim zakresie Europejczycy są zadowoleni z różnych aspektów społeczeństwa – jeżeli chodzi o usługi publiczne i stosunki społeczne – i jak wpływa to na ich komfort życia. W sprawozdaniu porównano także ustalenia bieżące z ustaleniami z 2007 r., aby sprawdzić, jak kryzys gospodarczy wpłynął na jakość społeczeństwa. Jakość życia zależy częściowo od dostępności dobrej jakości takich usług publicznych jak zdrowie, edukacja i opieka społeczna. Jakość życia i społeczeństwa kształtują także stosunki społeczne – brak napięć i nierówności między grupami społecznymi oraz zaufanie między ludźmi.
