Sammanfattning

Nearly 37,000 people in 33 European countries (28 EU Member States and 5 candidate countries) were interviewed in the last quarter of 2016 for the fourth wave of the European Quality of Life Survey. This overview report presents the findings for the EU Member States. It uses information from previous survey rounds, as well as other research, to look at trends in quality of life against a background of the changing social and economic profile of European societies. Ten years after the global economic crisis, it examines well-being and quality of life broadly, to include quality of society and public services. The findings indicate that differences between countries on many aspects are still prevalent – but with more nuanced narratives. Each Member State exhibits certain strengths in particular aspects of well-being, but multiple disadvantages are still more pronounced in some societies than in others; and in all countries significant social inequalities persist.

    Europeiska undersökningen om livskvalitet 2016

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Närmare 37 000 personer i 33 europeiska länder (28 EU-medlemsstater och fem kandidatländer) intervjuades under fjärde kvartalet 2016 för den fjärde europeiska undersökningen om livskvalitet (EQLS). I denna rapport ges en översikt över resultaten från EU-medlemsstaterna. Information från de tidigare undersökningarna, liksom annan forskning, används för att granska trender när det gäller livskvalitet, mot bakgrund av de europeiska samhällenas föränderliga sociala och ekonomiska profil. Tio år efter den globala ekonomiska krisen undersöks ett flertal aspekter på välbefinnande och livskvalitet samt samhällskvalitet och kvaliteten på offentliga tjänster. Resultaten visar att det fortfarande finns betydande skillnader mellan länderna på många områden, men att orsakerna till detta är mer nyanserade. Varje medlemsstat har vissa styrkor på en del områden i fråga om välbefinnande, men vissa samhällen dras med fler nackdelar än andra. I samtliga länder kvarstår betydande skillnader mellan olika sociala grupper.
