English title: Quality of life in Estonia in the European context
Author(s): Avo Trumm - Kairi Kasearu -
Type: Book chapter
The results of the analysis show that the low individual quality of life of Estonian residents is “in conformity” with the “low livability” of the society. Estonia’s lengthy period of economic growth has improved its inhabitants’ standard of living, but has not been so effective as to allow us to reach a quality of life comparable to most European countries. The lack of significant improvement in the social quality of life may begin to have a negative effect on individual opportunities for well-being in the near future.
