Abstract

This chapter looks at the social quality of families in Europe by focussing upon parents with young children using the European Quality of Life Survey, 2007. It considers the role of employment and unemployment in modifying the quality of life for fathers and mothers in 27 European countries. The aim of this chapter is to test the applicability of the social quality model to this particular group and to look at the variation in European countries.
