Cypriots rate their personal situation higher than EU average
February 03, 2010

Europeans are on average broadly satisfied with their personal situation, but less satisfied when it comes to the economy, public services and social policies in their country, according to an opinion survey released 2 February.

The Eurobarometer on the social climate in the EU also found large differences between countries, with people in the Nordic countries and the Netherlands generally most satisfied with their personal situation.

Nearly 27,000 people were polled across 30 countries – the 27 EU countries and Croatia, Turkey and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

The survey was conducted over three weeks in May and June, when Europe was struggling to pull itself out of the deepest recession in decades.

Respondents were asked to consider their wellbeing in terms of factors like their job, where they live and their household finances.

In a question regarding their personal situation, Cypriots gave an average score of +3.1 points which was higher than the average score of the community (+2.5) on a scale of -10 to 10.

Greeks gave an average score of -0,3 points, which was the third worst in the Community after Bulgaria (-1,4) and Hungary (-1,5).

In a question about the overall situation of their country, Cypriots gave a score of -3.1 points, which was almost identical to the average score of the Community (-3). The Greeks gave the lowest score with -5.5% in the Community together with the Hungarian, while the average score of the Community was -3.

In a question what score do you give for social protection and integration policy, the average score given by the respondents in Cyprus was -0,5 compared to -0,6 which was the average score of the community. The Greeks gave the lowest score in EU (-4,1).
