Zhrnutie

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. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Kvalita života v Európe: trendy v rokoch 2003 až 2012

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Nadácia Eurofound uskutočnila Európsky prieskum kvality života (EQLS) v rokoch 2003, 2007 a 2011. V tejto správe sa porovnávajú výsledky z uvedených troch vĺn, aby sa poskytli dôkazy o trendoch a zmenách v kvalite života Európanov v uplynulom desaťročí. Skúma sa v nej aj to, či sa rozdiely medzi členskými štátmi EÚ znížili alebo zostali stabilné. Jedným zo zistení je, že subjektívny blahobyt zostal v rámci EÚ ako celku stabilný, ale takisto sa zistilo, že v dôsledku hospodárskej krízy vzrástli finančné problémy v domácnostiach. V správe sa navrhuje aktívnejší prístup k sociálnej ochrane, pretože nižší príjem domácností má výrazný negatívny vplyv na kvalitu života, a to osobitne platí počas hospodárskeho poklesu.
