Young Ukrainians spreading their wings?

Young Ukrainians spreading their wings?

The mood of Ukrainians in the week from April 27th until May 1st 2020.
Representative sample size - 600 respondents

For the third week in a row, we are interviewing Ukrainians regarding their emotional state. In order to find out more about the principles of selecting a representative group and survey methods click here.

We ask our respondents to choose one of the three emotional states closest to their current mood.

These are the three options: hope for tomorrow, fear of tomorrow, humiliation due to the conditions in which people live.

The levels of hope, fear and humiliation that people in the country feel can tell us a lot about the real situation in society. You can find more information about our approach here.

Note: for comparison the following proportion can be considered as a perfect ratio of mass emotions: 76% of people living with hope for tomorrow, 12% - in fear and 12% - in humiliation.

Mood of different generations

The charts below show changes in the emotional state of Ukrainians according to our surveys conducted from the beginning of 2020.

Note: the data in the first column (24.01-06.03.20) is the total sum of audiences response data in the studio of the talk-show “Freedom of Speech with Savik Shuster” from January 24 to March 6, 2020 (a total of 700 respondents, a representative sample that reflects the population of Ukraine according to the following criteria: age, gender, place and type (city / village) of residence). We showcase this data to be able to compare the dynamics of the country's inhabitants mood before and after the start of the quarantine in Ukraine.

Young people 18-29 years of age

The youngest generation of Ukrainians who participated in the survey started to feel much more confident about the future compared to the results of previous surveys.

More young people in Ukraine have now a greater confidence (over the weeks course this indicator increased by 15 points) due to the events that occurred in their personal lives, work, study, and in the country.
