Abstract: More than one in ten (11%) people in the EU perceive their lives as unfair, and more than one quarter (26%) view their country as unfair. People have the most positive perceptions of fairness in Ireland, Austria, Denmark and Luxembourg. Perceptions of fairness increase with income and decline with age. The unemployed are less likely to view their lives or country as fair than people who have a job. Europeans' happiness is linked to how fair they consider their lives and their country to be.
