[Eurofound] Over the past decade, Turkey has undergone huge economic and social change. This report uses the monitoring tool developed by Eurofound – the European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) – to capture changes and developments regarding the quality of life of Turkish people, measured at three periods over the past decade: 2003, 2007 and 2012.

The report examines the most important improvements in quality of life during this time frame and assesses whether or not all social groups benefited equally. It explores the impact of recent policy changes and charts new expectations that may be emerging in Turkey. Responses from a representative sample were analysed and compared with the survey results for all EU28 countries.
