In November survey CVVM interrogated the citizens about their opinions on introduction or application of provision, which could be called for popularisation of population. Major part of respondents voted for almost all of these provisions (definitely yes, probably yes).
Only 29% of respondents think that the government cares for the social situation of their people in an adequate way, whilst two thirds (65%) of respondents think that it is insufficient, contrary to 4% who perceive it as excessive. Views on social care provided by the government to families with young children are even less favourable when only less than a quarter of respondents (24%) marked it as adequate, 71% respondents evaluated it as insufficient and 2% think it is excessive.
Out of the seven assessed social conditions the access to education was evaluated to be good (80%) and access to health care to be good (68%) by the majority of respondents. Areas such as jobs vacancies, social security for the elderly, standard of living for the handicapped and mainly financial conditions to start a family or to get a flat were evaluated in a very critical way. The current censuses show the considerable discontent of inhabitants as far as the chance to get a flat, financial security to start a family are concerned, which have been present since 1996.
The majority of respondents evaluate the access to education (71%) and health care (66%) as being very good.

The respondents were unanimous in their views on life conditions of officials, civil servants and entrepreneurs which they considered to be the best (78% or more precisely 74%).
