The global economic crisis is far from over, or at least that is what most Slovaks believe, according to the results of a telephone survey carried out by the Polis Slovakia polling agency in the third week of August 2011, the SITA newswire reported.

The survey found that 85.1 percent of those polled believe that the economic crisis will continue while only 8.5 percent of the respondents believe that the downturn is slowly ending. The rest of respondents had no opinion, SITA reported.

Many respondents, 45.1 percent, leaned toward the unambiguous response that the crisis will definitely continue, while 40 percent of Slovaks expected that the crisis will continue rather than end. On the other hand, only 2.5 percent of respondents believed that the global economic crisis is definitely approaching its end and 6 percent of the polled leaned toward its end rather than its continuation.
