Prague, March 7 (CTK) – Corruption, immigration and white-collar crime are the problems most worrying Czechs, according to a poll conducted by the CVVM polling institute in February and released yesterday.
On the other hand, Czechs are mostly content with the offer of goods and services, culture, transport services and the environment.
Czechs were to identify their concerns in 29 spheres of the life.
As against the previous poll conducted last September, the proportion of Czechs worried about immigration, the political situation, education and security situation has increased.
On the other hand, the number of those fearing unemployment has decreased.
“Both shifts in views prove that the public has reflected the dynamism of the refugee crisis in connection with national security on the one hand and a fall in the jobless rate on the other,” the pollsters wrote.
When it comes to the political situation and education, one could see a rupture as a rise in satisfaction lasting several years has given way to a fall.
In the sphere of education, a clear explanation is difficult to formulate, the experts said. Some say the attitudes could be influenced by the debates on inclusive education and harassment of teachers.
The poll was conducted on a sample of 1,080 Czechs over 15 between February 8 and 15.
