Attitudes of Ukrainians towards issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic (October 2021)
The survey was conducted by the Razumkov Centre sociological service from 14 to 20 October 2021 via face-to-face interviews at the respondents’ place of residence. 2018 respondents aged 18 and over were interviewed in all regions of Ukraine, except for Crimea and the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, based on a sample representative of the adult population. The theoretical sampling error (excluding the design effect) does not exceed 2.3% with a probability of 0.95.
The survey was conducted as a part of research projects carried out by the Razumkov Centre with the support of the Hans Seidel Foundation Representation in Ukraine.
