Agricultural and Organic Farming Production in the Analysis of Social Well-Being in the European Union Countries
AbstractThe study aim is to determine the relationship of factors associated with production of organic food and the quality of life (QoL) of Europeans. The QoL and organic agriculture are not one-dimensional variables related to behavior, reactions and relationships, regarding individuals, households, producers and farmers. In addition, these factors interact with each other. We intend to determine whether the QoL of Europeans is perceived by them only in terms of ownership, or whether issues related to the assessment of the condition and status of agricultural and organic farming production affect the perception of QoL in a non-material psychological aspect. The study mainly assessed the QoL in relation to subjective well-being based on selfassessment of Eurobarometer respondents (life satisfaction measured on 5-point Likert scale). The data for the study comes from the EUROSTAT and Eurobarometer databases for EU-countries in three groups. The analysis uses correspondence analysis and Hellwig's ordering method as main tools to detect relationships and similarities between the countries. In the study we checked whether the assessment of QoL is done by shaping individuals’ opportunities in life, not only with respect to the state of ownership but also the impact of objective factors, such as agricultural production volume.
