Survey: Slovaks enjoy better quality of life

SLOVAKS are enjoying an increased quality of life compared with that of 1999, a new survey called The Slovak Consumer 2003 showed.

The research was carried out by the MESA 10 Consulting Group, Publicis.Knut, and United Consultants, and included more than 8,000 respondents.

Publicis.Knut's Michal Bunčák told Slovak daily Hospodárske noviny "consumers have already gained modern attitudes towards financing their needs."

The survey showed that, in addition to necessary goods, more and more people buy things they admit are useless for their basic needs.

About 40 percent of respondents agreed that living in debt was a common phenomenon, and Bunčák said that this lifestyle was reflected in the growing number of clients of firms who offer the purchase of products on instalments.
