Half a year of the pandemic: what has changed in attitudes and electoral preferences of Ukrainians?
The survey was conducted by the Sociological Service of the Razumkov Centre in cooperation with the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation on 3-9 July 2020, using the method of face-to-face interviews at the respondents’ place of residence. 2022 respondents aged 18 and over were interviewed in all regions of Ukraine, with the exception of Crimea and the occupied territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, by sample, representing adult population of the country by major socio-demographic indicators. The theoretical sample error (excluding the design effect) does not exceed 2.3% with a probability of 0.95.
