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. [Herausgeber]

Information is key in any effort to promote cohesion in Europe. Seeking to address gaps in existing knowledge, the Foundation launched its European Quality of Life Survey in 2003.

Title: Working conditions surveys : A comparative analysis
Abstract
The objective of this report is to awaken the interest of the research community in surveys of working conditions, and to illustrate how a variety of working conditions surveys are conducted in different European and other industrialised countries. In this case, priority has been given to a descriptive analysis of the surveys. The background for this study dates back to July 2001, when the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions announced its interest in financing an analysis of the national working conditions surveys being conducted in the European Union. Every five years, the Foundation conducts a working conditions survey in the Member States of the European Union. This survey was conducted in 1990/91, 1995 and 2000. Similar data collection systems exist on a national scale in Europe and other industrialised countries (Australia, Canada, Japan and the United States). [Herausgeber]

Title: Women living alone : evaluation of their specific difficulties
Abstract
Demographic and social changes in the European Union in the last decades have led to a significant increase in the number of single households and in women living alone. Modern welfare systems only partially respond to the needs of women living alone. Across Europe the different welfare systems have different impacts on the female condition, not only in relation to the reduction in gender gaps, but also in relation to services and provisions needed when living alone, especially as single mothers or as elderly women. This study presents the specific difficulties of women over 25 years of age living alone in the European countries, highlighting national differences in the incidence and main characteristics of women living alone, and analyses the policies adopted to support their economic and living conditions, focusing on pension and assistance schemes and providing examples of good practices and policy recommendations.

Title: Women managers and hierarchical structures in working life
Abstract
To better understand the progress women have made thus far in the European Union, this report analyses the current situation and the obstacles women face on the way to top managerial positions in more detail. It first examines what the literature tells us about the careers of female managers; then reviews the existing European data on women in managerial positions in the EU, using information from the European Working Conditions Surveys.[Eurofound]

Title: Living and working in Ireland : A supplement to the Living and Working in Europe overview
Abstract
According to the latest research findings, Ireland has much in common with the wealthier countries of the EU. Survey data from Eurofound give a detailed snapshot of how Irish people live, what their working conditions are like and whether they view their experiences positively or negatively. The profound and rapid transformation of Irish society and economy over the last 15 years, propelling the country from a position at the bottom of the league to the ranks of the more affluent countries of the EU15, is reflected in these data. This leaflet outlines some key findings from recent Eurofound survey data with particular reference to Ireland.[Eurofound]
