QUALITY OF LIFE IN EUROPE: FACTS AND VIEWS--OVERALL LIFE SATISFACTION [19 March 2015]
Data extracted in March 2015. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.
This article focuses on well-being of people in the European Union (EU) and is part of a set of articles forming the publication Quality of life in Europe - facts and views. Subjective well-being allows an integration of the diversity of the experiences, choices, priorities and values of an individual. The data used on subjective evaluations and perceptions of different domains were collected for the first time in European official statistics through the 2013 Ad-hoc module of EU SILC on subjective well-being.
Subjective well-being encompasses three distinct but complementary sub-dimensions: life satisfaction, based on an overall cognitive assessment; affects, or the presence of positive feelings and absence of negative feelings; and eudaimonics, the feeling that one’s life has a meaning, as recommended by the OECD Guidelines on Measuring Subjective Well-being. In the Eurostatquality of life framework, all three sub-dimensions are covered.
