Posted on by

It might as well be springEurofound has published an analysis on subjective well-being levels across Europe entitled “Quality of life in Europe: Subjective well-being.”

 While life satisfaction increased marginally across the European Union between 2007 and 2011, happiness and optimism levels have fallen and perceived social exclusion has increased, indicating a decline in overall well-being in many European countries during the crisis.

 Eurofound’s new report assesses the impact of the crisis on the subjective well-being of Europeans, drawing policy-relevant findings from its third European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS). It is the first in a series of reports which covers social inequalities, quality of society and public services, and trends in quality of life in Europe over the past decade.
