Almost half (47 percent) of the respondents in an MVK agency survey carried out in December are worried that the global financial and economic crisis will have a significant impact on Slovakia, Pavel Haulík from MVK told TASR on January 5.

According to the survey, one in twelve people are expecting a catastrophic impact. Among the most pessimistic respondents were the unemployed, retired people over 60 and LS-HZDS supporters.

Only 2.6 percent of the participants think that the crisis will not affect Slovakia, an opinion that is relatively often held by young people under 30, especially students, managers, people with the highest salaries, inhabitants of Bratislava and Kosice, and HZDS supporters again.

Around 39 percent of the respondents think that the real crisis is yet to come, while more than half (54.6 percent) think that it has already arrived. The latter view is prevalent among the unemployed, ethnic-Hungarian SMK party supporters and people from age 30 to 40. Around 31.5 percent expect the impact of the crisis to be mild, mainly managers, businessmen, students, people with the highest salaries and Slovak National Party (SNS) supporters, news wire TASR wrote.
