An opinion poll carried out by the Institute for Public Issues (IVO) suggests that most Slovak families did not improve their financial situation in 1998. Only 14% of respondents said their financial situation had improved significantly or slightly, while 46% said their situation had not changed at all. 39% of respondents said their financial situation had deteriorated.

The IVO research suggests that citizens are more optimistic about the future, however, as 30% thought that the financial situation in their households would be decisively or somewhat better in the next five years. 22% expected their financial situation to worsen.
