Sumar

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.

    Calitatea vieţii în Europa – calitatea societăţii şi a serviciilor publice

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Prezentul raport utilizează constatări ale celui de-al treilea Sondaj privind calitatea vieţii pentru a determina gradul de satisfacţie al cetăţenilor europeni cu privire la diferite aspecte ale societăţii – în materie de servicii publice şi relaţii sociale – şi modul în care acestea le afectează bunăstarea. Raportul compară, de asemenea, constatările cu cele din 2007 pentru a stabili modul în care criza economică a afectat calitatea societăţii. Calitatea vieţii depinde parţial de disponibilitatea serviciilor publice de bună calitate, precum serviciile medicale, de educaţie şi de asistenţă socială. De asemenea, calitatea vieţii şi a societăţii este influenţată de relaţiile sociale: absenţa tensiunilor, egalitatea dintre grupurile sociale şi încrederea dintre oameni.
