Title:Entwicklung einer Ländertypologie zur Analyse der Lebensqualität in Europa : Zusammenfassung
Parallel Title:Developing a country typology for analysing quality of life in Europe : executive summary | Élaborer une typologie des pays pour analyser la qualité de vie en Europe : Synthèse
Abstract:Mit zunehmender Größe und Vielfalt der Europäischen Union wird es immer schwieriger, die Auswirkungen staatlicher Maßnahmen auf das Leben der Bürger zusammenzufassen. Diese Komplexität lässt sich u. a. dadurch angehen, dass Länder anhand von Merkmalen, die für die Lebensqualität von Belang sind, in Gruppen eingeordnet werden. In diesem Bericht wird eine Ländertypologie mit dem Schwerpunkt auf der Lebensqualität als einem mehrdimensionalen Begriff entwickelt. Der Bericht gründet sich a) auf eine Durchsicht der Literatur über Ländergruppen, b) eine empirische Clusteranalyse von Indikatoren auf Makroebene für die staatliche Leistungs- und Handlungsfähigkeit und c) eine Analyse von Daten zur Lebensqualität aus der europäischen Erhebung zur Lebensqualität 2012. In diesem Bericht wird eine Typologie der 34 in diese Erhebung einbezogenen Länder (die 28 EU-Mitgliedstaaten sowie die ehemalige jugoslawische Republik Mazedonien, Island, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbien und die Türkei) entwickelt. Er gründet sich hauptsächlich auf eine Synthese der gesichteten Literatur und empfiehlt ein System von acht Gruppen, die je nach den Erfordernissen der Analyse zu fünf oder drei Gruppen zusammengefasst werden können.

Title:Developing a country typology for analysing quality of life in Europe
Abstract: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.

Title:Third european qualitiy of life survey : quality of life in Europe ; families in the economic crisis
Abstract:The economic crisis has reshaped the lives of millions of European citizens. But how has it affected families with children? Children are more at risk of poverty or social exclusion than the overall population in a large majority of EU countries; hence, it is important to understand how the crisis has affected the households in which these children grow up. This report describes the changing quality of life across the EU for different types of families with children and compares their living standards and social situation. Grouping the EU Member States into four categories on the basis of the flexibility or otherwise of their family policies, it also examines potential patterns that may be related to different family policy approaches. Themes that emerge from the findings include the particular challenges facing lone parents, the greater difficulties facing jobless families since the onset of the crisis, and the increasing extent of conflict parents experience in seeking to balance their work and family lives.

Title:Lebensqualität in Europa : Familien in der Wirtschaftskrise ; Zusammenfassung
Parallel Title:Quality of life in Europe : families in the economic crisis ; executive summary | Qualité de vie en Europe : les familles dans la crise économique ; synthèse
Abstract:Die Wirtschaftskrise hat das Leben von Millionen europäischer Bürger verändert. Doch wie hat sie sich auf Familien mit Kindern ausgewirkt? Kinder sind in den allermeisten EU-Ländern einem größeren Risiko von Armut oder sozialer Ausgrenzung ausgegrenzt als die Gesamtbevölkerung. Daher ist es wichtig, die Auswirkungen der Krise auf die Haushalte zu verstehen, in denen diese Kinder aufwachsen. In diesem Bericht werden die Veränderungen der Lebensqualität in der EU für die verschiedenen Familienformen mit Kindern beschrieben sowie ihr Lebensstandard und ihre soziale Lage verglichen. Nach der Unterteilung der EU-Mitgliedstaaten auf Grundlage der Flexibilität oder anderer Kriterien ihrer Familienpolitik in vier Gruppen werden auch potenzielle Muster untersucht, die möglicherweise mit unterschiedlichen Ansätzen in der Familienpolitik in Zusammenhang stehen. Zu den Themen, die sich aufgrund dieser Erkenntnisse abzeichnen, zählen die besonderen Herausforderungen für Alleinerziehende, die größeren Schwierigkeiten, mit denen erwerbslose Familien seit Beginn der Krise konfrontiert sind, sowie die zunehmenden Schwierigkeiten von Eltern bei der Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Familienleben.

Title:Quality of life in Europe : trends 2003-2012 ; 3. european quality life survey
Abstract: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.

Title:Ensuring quality of life in Europe's cities and towns
Parallel Title:Tackling the environmental challenges driven by European and global change
Abstract:This report highlights the connections between the different dimensions of quality of life and analyzes the inherent causal relationships. These range from clear linkages such as the health benefits of green open space for urban populations to less evident relationships such as the way that individual choice of housing has environmental impacts that affect quality of life. In this way, the report addresses the sustainable design and development of Europe's cities, perceiving environmental quality as a fundamental building block of social well‑being and urban quality of life.

Title:The Urban Audit — measuring the quality of life in European cities
Abstract:Wenn es darum geht, eine Stadt für qualifizierte Arbeitskräfte, Unternehmen, Studenten, Touristen und vor allem für neue Einwohner attraktiv zu machen und diese Anziehungskraft auch langfristig zu erhalten, spielt eine gute Lebensqualität eine entscheidende Rolle. Voraussetzung für jede Verbesserung, Weiterentwicklung und auch für die künftige Beobachtung ist zunächst die Bewertung der gegenwärtigen wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Situation. Eine Antwort auf diesen Bedarf an objektiven Informationen stellt das Urban Audit dar.

Title:Monitoring quality of life in Europe
Abstract:The challenges arising from low employment rates, an ageing population, changing family structures and social exclusion have pushed ‘quality of life’ issues to the front of the EU social policy agenda. The Foundation has launched an initiative to improve the monitoring and reporting of living conditions and quality of life in Europe. The first step was to develop a conceptual framework that would be appropriate for the Foundation’s mission to meet information needs of policy-makers among public authorities and social partners, specifically at EU level.This report examines key concepts, research and policy developments related to quality of life. It identifies gaps in information and develops a strategy for monitoring. It recommends focusing on a limited number of life domains and analysing the linkages between them, with time use regarded as a crucial aspect of the interrelationships. The conclusions prepare the way for a new survey of quality of life in 28 European countries. This survey will enable the Foundation to describe and analyse trends on a comparative basis and to identify emerging issues for future EU policy.
