Slovaks Perceive Unemployment as The Most Serious Social Problem
People in Slovakia see unemployment as the most crucial problem currently worrying the country. According to the results of a survey recently conducted by Slovak Public Affairs Institute (IVO), almost two-thirds of respondents (64%) consider the high jobless rate to be the most troublesome issue. The second problem is dissatisfaction with living standards and social security, said by more than half of respondents (53%). The third place (29%) is shared by health care problems and problems of corruption, cronyism, nepotism and violations of moral principles.
Compared to February 2010, Slovaks perceive less sharply corruption, cronyism, nepotism and violations of moral rules. Less people concerned about the absence of effective macroeconomic policy. The public became less critical about the problems of political culture and quality of democracy.
Now Slovaks perceives more sensitively troubles which may touch them personally - problems with health care, living standards and social security.
