Evaluation of the Standard of Living

In April 2004 the standard of living of their household was evaluated as good by two fifths (40%) of respondents, 43% evaluated it as neither good, nor bad and 16% characterised it as bad. Perception of the standard of living is improving with a growing income and with a growing level of education of the respondents. Lately, owners of medium and small enterprise, senior specialists and managers, young people between 15-19, students, single and potential ODS supporters belong to the more satisfied group of society.

Groups perceiving their standard of living as worse consist of people over 60, pensioners, unemployed, manual workers, divorced and widowed and KSČM party supporters.
