Razumkov Centre for Economic and Political Studies published findings concerning evaluation of current situation in the country by its citizens
Razumkov Centre for Economic and Political Studies published findings concerning evaluation of current situation in the country by its citizens, the level of trust in the executive and law enforcement authorities, as well as an assessment of the Government's activities in February 2020.
The survey was conducted by Sociological Service of Razumkov Centre from February 13 to February 17. 2018 respondents were interviewed over the age of 18 in all regions of Ukraine, with the exception of Crimea and the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, by sample, representing adult population of the country by major socio-demographic indicators. The sample of the survey was constructed as a multi-stage random sample of respondents at the last stage. The theoretical sampling error (excluding design effect) does not exceed 2.3% with a probability of 0.95.
According to the survey 25% of respondents believe that events in Ukraine are developing in the right direction (in September 2019, 57% thought so, in December 2019 - 44%), 53% - that events are going in the wrong direction (in September - 17%, in December - 36%). Consequently, the proportion of those who believe that events in Ukraine are developing in the wrong direction has significantly exceeded the proportion of those who hold the opposite view.
At the same time, confidence in the executive and law enforcement authorities remains at a rather high level. Thus, 60% of those polled trust the State Border Guard Service. National Guard of Ukraine has the same indicator, and Armed Forces of Ukraine (69% of the respondents trust them) and the State Emergency Service (65%) have the highest levels of confidence.
