Spotlight on mental health in Europe

10-10-2016

Mental health problems not only exact a toll on the people affected, they also put pressure on health, economic and welfare systems. The EU is promoting mental health through various instruments. Globally, World Mental Health Day is held on 10 October each year to raise awareness.

Measuring well-being and progress: Looking beyond GDP

04-03-2014

Gross domestic product (GDP), a measure of national economic production, has come to be used as a general measure of well-being and progress in society, and as a key indicator in deciding a wide range of public policies. However GDP does not take into account non-economic factors such as social issues and the environment. In the aftermath of the crisis, the EU needs reliable, transparent and convincing measures for evaluating progress.

This Statistical Spotlight gives background for the six partner countries in the European Union’s Eastern Neighbourhood: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Using different indicators, the paper looks at the aid paid by the EU to the six countries, under the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI) as well as other instruments. It shows the amount paid over the whole period 2001-2011, the breakdown per year, per country and by sector for 2011, and finally, the difference in percentage terms between ENPI and the other instruments. It shows gross domestic product (GDP) for those countries relative to EU GDP for the 2001-2011 period. Inward foreign direct investment (FDI) and trade in goods are considered, as well as the employment rate. Three indexes are presented to give a global view of the corruption perceived in those countries, the level of human development and the level of civic and political freedom.

This paper gives statistical background for ten partners in the South Mediterranean neighbourhood: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT, the West Bank and Gaza Strip), Syria and Tunisia. This Spotlight aims to visualise different indicators: firstly it shows the amount of aid paid by the EU institutions to the ten countries, under instruments like ENPI (European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument), ECHO (European Community Humanitarian Office) as well as others. It shows the amount paid in the whole period 2001-2011, the breakdown per year and per country and finally the breakdown by sector for the year 2011. It considers as well the aid programmed for the years 2012 and 2013 for each country. It shows gross domestic product (GDP) for those countries in relation to EU GDP for the 2001-2011 period. Inward foreign direct investment (FDI) and trade in goods are considered, as well as the employment rate. Three indexes are then presented to give an overall view of the corruption perceived in those countries, the level of human development and the level of freedom.

Women Living Alone - An Update

15-10-2012

The current economic downturn and financial and budgetary crisis impacts the situation of women on the labour market and their living conditions. It is interesting to see the particularities of the situation of single women older women living alone and without dependants, relative to the rest of the population and to single and elderly men and women not living alone. Besides the usual labour market indicators, indicators on the quality of employment, sources of income and living conditions should ...

The current economic downturn and financial and budgetary crisis impacts the situation of women on the labour market and their living conditions. It is interesting to see the particularities of the situation of single women older women living alone and without dependants, relative to the rest of the population and to single and elderly men and women not living alone. Besides the usual labour market indicators, indicators on the quality of employment, sources of income and living conditions should be considered. The following analysis covers all the 27 EU Member States (according to data availability). It is also important to analyse the policy changes implied by the crisis: changes in pension systems, labour market and active ageing policies and assistance policies. In this document, the qualitative analysis of the main policy reforms introduced in recent years focuses on six countries selected as representative of European welfare systems: Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, Romania. The main aspects of the policy reforms identified, their functioning in the frame of the more general national welfare systems and their expected impact in the gender perspective are described with special attention given to expected impacts on women living alone without dependants and elderly women living alone. In the selected countries some good practices can be identified to alleviate (directly or indirectly) the potential negative effects of welfare and labour market reforms on the conditions of women living alone and, especially, on older women living alone. These good practices are used as evidence to draw upon for policy recommendations.

On the Social Consequences of Unemployment

15-01-2010

The world economy presently suffers from a financial crisis. As a result, unemployment has risen considerably in many countries and it may continue to rise even further. This note attempts to explore the social consequences of unemployment. In doing so, this note concentrates on the individual level. It asks whether the social networks of unemployed individuals are affected. A further significant issue is how unemployment impinges on individual satisfaction and well-being.

The world economy presently suffers from a financial crisis. As a result, unemployment has risen considerably in many countries and it may continue to rise even further. This note attempts to explore the social consequences of unemployment. In doing so, this note concentrates on the individual level. It asks whether the social networks of unemployed individuals are affected. A further significant issue is how unemployment impinges on individual satisfaction and well-being. There is no reason to believe that the present crisis is an isolated phenomenon. Also in the future, there are likely to be recurrent serious economic downturns and as a result unemployment levels will vary substantially across time. To some extent, these variations can be counteracted by national economic policies, but with an increasingly integrated global economy the possible actions by national governments are rather circumscribed.
