Public Opinion on the Austerity Program of the Government

In October 2010 the regular CVVM survey included questions related to austerity program of the government. Respondents should have expressed their opinion on the need for economic changes and declared their awareness of the austerity measures which the government was preparing. People also should have expressed agreement or disagreement with those measures. The CVVM poll asked Czechs to say, whether the impact of the measures will be distributed righteously in the Czech society and how forthcoming changes in the state budget will affect selected areas of life.

Respondents also expressed their opinion on the overall level of taxes and mandatory insurance and whether the tax burden is equitably shared among the different groups of inhabitants.
