Özet

This report assesses the impact of the crisis on the subjective well-being of Europeans. In 2011, GDP per capita in 22 out of the then 27 EU Member States was below 2008 levels, and unemployment rates were higher in 25 out of the 27. These indicators demonstrate worrying trends, but the report goes deeper, trying to answer various questions: What is the real impact on people’s lives? Who has been hit hardest? Where have there been positive wellbeing patterns? What explains the variation in well-being across Europe? How can policy increase or stem the fall in well-being in the future? It concludes that the crisis may not be affecting everyone’s well-being equally, nor all aspects of well-being. Well-being has fallen in many EU countries, remaining highest in northern countries. However, falls in wellbeing in many western EU countries have been matched by increases in eastern countries. Population groups with low well-being include those limited by disability or illness and unemployed people. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Avrupa’da yaşam kalitesi: Öznel refah

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Bu rapor krizin Avrupalıların nesnel refahı üzerindeki etkisini değerlendirmektedir. 2011 yılında, o zamanki 27 AB Üye Devletinin 22’sinde kişi başı GSYİH 2008’deki seviyelerin altında idi ve 27 ülkenin 25’inde işsizlik oranları daha yüksekti. Bu göstergeler endişe verici eğilimleri göstermektedir, ancak rapor daha derine inerek çeşitli soruların cevabını bulmaya çalışmaktadır: İnsanların yaşamlarında gerçek etkisi nedir? En çok etkilenenler kimlerdir? Pozitif refah örnekleri nerelerde görülmüştür? Avrupa çapında refah farklılıkları neyle açıklanabilir? Gelecekte politikalar refahı nasıl artırabilir ya da düşüşü engelleyebilir? Rapor, krizin ne herkesin refahını ne de refahın tüm yönlerini eşit şekilde etkilemeyebileceği sonucuna varmaktadır. Pek çok AB ülkesinde refah azalmış ancak kuzey ülkelerinde en yüksek düzeyde olmayı sürdürmüştür. Bununla beraber, çoğu AB ülkesinde refahtaki düşüşler doğu ülkelerindeki artışla örtüşmüştür. Düşük refaha sahip nüfus grupları arasında engellilik ya da hastalık nedeniyle kısıtlama yaşayanlar ve işsizler yer almaktadır.
