Unemployment and a lack of job opportunities were seen as Slovakia's biggest problem (by 43 percent), with 40 percent pointing to the increasing gap in incomes. Other problems mentioned were high living costs, a high crime rate, the low quality of health care, high taxes and deductions, and corruption.
