SLOVAKS worry primarily about their problems related to living standards and social securities, a new survey showed.
According to a poll carried out by the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) think tank, low income, social injustice, and poverty were on the top of the list of worries among the Slovak population. The survey was carried out on 1,120 respondents between September 17 and 23.
Two thirds of Slovaks were worried about living standards and social securities, 58 percent were worried about unemployment, 46 percent about health care, followed by 28 percent who were unhappy with morale and corruption in the society.
The response to problems related to crime showed a positive trend, with only 14 percent of respondents considering it a reason for worries, down from the 36 percent that was posted in 1999.
