Povzetek

As the European Union grows in size and diversity, it becomes increasingly challenging to summarise the impact of state actions on the lives of citizens. One approach to this complexity is to group countries based on characteristics relevant to quality of life. This report develops a country typology focused on quality of life as a multidimensional concept. It draws on (a) a review of the literature on country groups, (b) an empirical cluster analysis of macro-level indicators of state capacity and action and (c) an analysis of data on quality of life from the 2012 European Quality of Life Survey. This report develops a typology of the 34 countries included in this survey (the 28 EU Member States as well as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey). Drawing mainly on a synthesis of the literature, it goes on to recommend an eight-group system, which can be collapsed into five or three groups depending on the requirements of the analysis. An executive summary is available.

    Razvoj tipologije držav za analizo kakovosti življenja v Evropi

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Ker se Evropska unija širi in postaja vse bolj raznolika, je povzemanje učinka državnih ukrepov na življenje državljanov vse večji izziv. Eden od pristopov k temu zapletenemu vprašanju je združevanje držav na podlagi značilnosti, pomembnih za kakovost življenja. To poročilo vsebuje razvoj tipologije držav, usmerjene v kakovost življenja, kot večrazsežnostnega koncepta. Poročilo temelji na (a) pregledu literature o skupinah držav, (b) empirični analizi grozda kazalnikov na makro ravni za zmogljivosti in ukrepanje države ter (c) analizi podatkov o kakovosti življenja iz evropske raziskave o kakovosti življenja iz leta 2012. Vsebuje razvoj tipologije 34 držav, vključenih v to raziskavo (28 držav članic EU ter Nekdanjo jugoslovansko republiko Makedonijo, Islandijo, Kosovo, Črno goro, Srbijo in Turčijo). V poročilu, ki temelji predvsem na povzetku literature, se priporoča osemskupinski sistem, ki se lahko razdeli na pet ali tri skupine, odvisno od zahtev analize.
