Abstract: There is widespread recognition of the need for indicators of quality of life that go beyond the traditional economic indicators, such as gross domestic product. European society is diverse and changing rapidly, and there is a clear hierarchy in life satisfaction across groups of countries, with the highest levels in the 15 older EU Member States (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) – particularly in the Nordic countries – followed by the 12 new Member States (Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia) and with the lowest levels in the three candidate states - Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey (Subjective well-being in Europe, 2010). The bulk of the differences between countries and country groups are explained by differences in objective conditions in these countries: demographic characteristics, socioeconomic factors, health and disability, social support and quality of society. The findings suggest that in order to improve subjective well-being and quality of life, it is more important to focus on improving material circumstances of people who are most disadvantaged rather than raising the average standard of living (Subjective well-being in Europe, 2010). Unfortunately, recognising the necessity to go beyond economic factors affecting people’s subjective well-being, the study fails to portray the role of multidimensionality of the human nature leaving aside psychological aspects of human functioning.[...]
