Slovaks concerned about cost of living and living standards

According to a recent MVK agency survey, Slovaks think the high cost of living and growing disparities in living standards are the country's most serious problems. High living costs were chosen by 46.5 percent of those questioned, while 44.9 percent opted for increasing differences in living standards.

The poll, carried out on a sample of 1,101 respondents in October, also showed that unemployment and lack of job opportunities were in third place AT 33.2 percent, followed by crime at 32.2 percent, and the level of health care services at 28.8 percent.

The ten most serious problems for Slovaks also included corruption (22.3 percent), pensions and care for the elderly (19.5 percent), education and housing (both at 13.7 percent), and the level and character of Slovakia's democracy (9.9 percent). TASR
