Abstract

Nearly 37,000 people in 33 European countries (28 EU Member States and 5 candidate countries) were interviewed in the last quarter of 2016 for the fourth wave of the European Quality of Life Survey. This overview report presents the findings for the EU Member States. It uses information from previous survey rounds, as well as other research, to look at trends in quality of life against a background of the changing social and economic profile of European societies. Ten years after the global economic crisis, it examines well-being and quality of life broadly, to include quality of society and public services. The findings indicate that differences between countries on many aspects are still prevalent – but with more nuanced narratives. Each Member State exhibits certain strengths in particular aspects of well-being, but multiple disadvantages are still more pronounced in some societies than in others; and in all countries significant social inequalities persist. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Inquérito Europeu sobre a Qualidade de Vida 2016

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Cerca de 37 000 pessoas em 33 países europeus (28 Estados-Membros da UE e 5 países candidatos) foram entrevistadas no último trimestre de 2016 para a quarta edição do Inquérito Europeu sobre a Qualidade de Vida. O presente relatório geral apresenta as conclusões relativas aos Estados-Membros da UE. Utiliza informações dos inquéritos anteriores, bem como informações obtidas a partir de outras pesquisas, para analisar as tendências na qualidade de vida no contexto da evolução do perfil social e económico das sociedades europeias. Dez anos após a crise económica mundial, analisa o bem-estar e a qualidade de vida de forma abrangente, incluindo a qualidade da sociedade e dos serviços públicos. As conclusões indicam que as diferenças entre países ainda prevalecem em muitos aspetos, mas são menos acentuadas. Cada Estado-Membro exibe determinados pontos fortes, em especial no que diz respeito a aspetos relacionados com o bem-estar, mas em algumas sociedades as situações desfavoráveis continuam a ser mais pronunciadas comparativamente a outras sociedades. Além disso, as desigualdades sociais persistem em todos os países e são significativas.
