Eurofound has conducted the European Quality of Life Survey EQLS) in 2003, 2007 and 2011. This report compares the results from the three waves to provide evidence of trends and change in the quality of life of Europeans over a decade. It also examines whether differences across EU Member States have narrowed or remained stable. One of its findings is that subjective well-being has remained stable across the EU as whole, but it also finds that financial strain in households has grown in the wake of the economic crisis. The report proposes a more active approach to social protection, as lower household income is a strong negative influence on quality of life, and especially so in an economic downturn.

    Qualidade de vida na Europa: Tendências 2003 2012

    Autor(es): 
    Eurofound
    A Eurofound realizou o inquérito europeu sobre a qualidade de vida (EQLS) em 2003, 2007 e 2011. Este relatório compara os resultados das três séries de inquéritos para identificar as tendências e as mudanças da qualidade de vida dos europeus ao longo de uma década. Examina ainda se as diferenças entre os Estados Membros da União se atenuaram ou se mantiveram estáveis. Uma das conclusões do relatório é a de que o bem estar subjetivo se manteve estável em toda a União, embora as dificuldades financeiras das famílias se tenham agravado com a crise económica. O relatório propõe uma abordagem mais ativa da proteção social, porquanto a redução dos rendimentos das famílias tem uma forte influência negativa na qualidade de vida, particularmente numa conjuntura de recessão económica.

  • European Quality of Life Surveys

    The European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) is carried out every four to five years since its inception in 2003, with the latest edition in 2016. It examines both the objective circumstances of people's lives and how they feel about those circumstances and their lives in general. It covers issues around employment, income, education, housing, family, health and work–life balance. It also looks at subjective topics, such as people's levels of happiness and life satisfaction, and perceptions of the quality of society.
