Trends in quality of life in the EU: 2003-2009 (résumé)
Monitoring changes in Europeans’ quality of life and developing policies to boost their well-being are increasingly important in EU debate. Increasingly, it is acknowledged that while economic indicators such as gross domestic product (GDP) are important in assessing the level of well-being in a country, they are not sufficient. More and more, it is argued that public policy should be assessed in terms of how it directly promotes citizens’ welfare, taking in considerations of social and environmental, as well as economic, conditions.
