Romanians, EU citizens most concerned with job security

Romanians are the EU members most concerned with job security and recognition received at the workplace, according to a survey publicized by the European Commission (EC) and quoted by ‘Romania Libera’ daily. Thus, 36 per cent of them are afraid of losing their job, in contrast to the European average of 25 per cent. The percentage of Romanians that consider they are not receiving the recognition they deserve at the workplace stands at 32 per cent, compared to the EU average of 19 per cent. The same survey shows that overall Romanian respondents are emotionally more negativistic than the EU average. Thus, the percentage of those that stated they are “happy” (48 per cent), “calm and peaceful” (56 per cent) all the time or most of the time was below the EU average (61 per cent). The percentage of Romanian respondents that stated they have achieved less because of both a physical and psychical problem surpasses the EU average. Moreover, one third of Romanian respondents have asked for special help (from doctors, pharmacists, psychologists, psychiatrists) in the last 12 months (35 per cent compared to EU average of 15 per cent), the hike becoming significant starting with 2006.


Nevertheless, the percentage of Romanians that took antidepressants in the last 12 months was similar to the EU average (6 per cent compared to EU average of 7 per cent). However, the percentage of respondents that took antidepressants to treat depression was below the EU average (23 per cent compared to EU average of 51 per cent), in contrast to the percentage of those that took them to treat anxiety (42 per cent compared to EU average of 47 per cent).
