Povzetek

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.

    Kakovost življenja v Evropi: težnje razvoja v obdobju 2003–2012

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Eurofound je evropsko raziskavo o kakovosti življenja (EQLS) izvedel v letih 2003, 2007 in 2011. To poročilo primerja rezultate iz treh obdobij, da bi se ugotovila gibanja in spremembe v kakovosti življenja Evropejcev v desetletju. V njem se preučuje tudi, ali so se razlike po državah članicah EU zmanjšale ali so ostale približno enake. Med drugim je v njem ugotovljeno, da je subjektivno dobro počutje v EU kot celoti ostalo stabilno, in tudi, da so se zaradi gospodarske krize povečale finančne stiske gospodinjstev. V poročilu je predlagan dejavnejši pristop k socialnemu varstvu, saj manjši dohodki gospodinjstva zelo negativno vplivajo na kakovost življenja, zlasti med gospodarsko recesijo.
