Iceland -Life satisfaction and income -September 03, 2013

The European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) is a survey that serves as a source of information on living conditions, housing, local environment, health, public services, social cohesion and quality of society, as well as subjective well-being. In the country profile on the quality of life based on the third EQLS and published by Eurofound the conclusion is drawn that in Iceland income is by far the most important predictor of life satisfaction. The employment rate for women in Iceland (77%) is the highest in Europe. Work–life conflict is experienced by 54% of people, a similar level to the EU27 average of 56%.
