Sumar

What determines life satisfaction and happiness? How do we value our social situation and immediate surroundings? How has this changed with the economic crisis? For the third wave of the European Quality of Life survey, 35,500 Europeans in all EU Member States were interviewed, in an effort to gain insights to these questions. This overview report presents findings and trends and shows that the impacts of the recession are indeed noticeable and measurable in some areas, while in others there are more long-term developments to be observed. While overall life satisfaction levels have not changed much, optimism about the future and trust in institutions have declined markedly in those countries most affected by the downturn. And groups that were already vulnerable – the long-term unemployed, older people in central and eastern Europe and single parents – report the highest levels of material deprivation and dissatisfaction with their life situation. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Calitatea vieţii în Europa: Impactul crizei - Rezumat

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ce anume determină satisfacţia vieţii, fericirea, modul în care ne apreciem situaţia socială şi mediul imediat înconjurător şi ce schimbări au avut loc în acest sens odată cu criza economică? Pentru cea de-a treia rundă a Sondajului european privind calitatea vieţii, au fost intervievaţi 35 000 de europeni din toate statele membre. Acest raport general prezintă constatările şi tendinţele şi arată că impactul recesiunii este într-adevăr vizibil şi măsurabil. În timp ce nivelurile generale ale satisfacţiei vieţii nu s-au modificat considerabil, optimismul cu privire la viitor şi încrederea în instituţii au scăzut semnificativ în ţările care au fost cel mai sever afectate de criză. De asemenea, grupurile care erau deja vulnerabile – şomerii pe termen lung, persoanele în vârstă din Europa Centrală şi de Est şi părinţii singuri – raportează cele mai ridicate niveluri ale neajunsurilor materiale şi lipsei de satisfacţie în legătură cu situaţia vieţii lor personale.
