A new report published by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living
and Working Conditions sets out a descriptive analysis of the data collected by
the Eurobarometer Survey (2005).
It examines two key areas of enquiry:
Mobility appears to be not always the result of individual choices. Indeed,
mobility, particularly job mobility, is often found to be a characteristic of
the more vulnerable groups in society. The analysis also shows that
mobility-related decisions are the result of important and often difficult
trade-offs. People attracted by the idea of making a long-distance move report
that they fear the loss of contact and support from family and relatives. It
would also appear that what is good for the EU as a whole greater overall
levels of mobility is not necessarily reflected in how individuals feel about
mobility in their own lives.
