Law Enforcement Agencies during COVID-19 Pandemic: Do Ukrainians Approve Police Actions and How They React to Use of Force in the Crisis Situations
A national survey was conducted by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation and the Razumkov Centre sociological service from 14th to 19th of May 2021 in all regions of Ukraine with exception of Crimea and occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. The sample represents the adult population according to main socio-demographic characteristics. The survey was conducted by face-to-face interviews. 2020 respondents 18 years of age and older were surveyed. The theoretical error of the selection does not exceed 2.3%.
The Foundation’s and the Centre’s early July 2020 nationwide poll data is used for comparison. 2022 respondents were surveyed, aged 18 and older across all regions of Ukraine with exception of Crimea and occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. The theoretical error of this selection (omitting the design-effect) does not excel 2.3% with a probability of 0.95.
The mentioned surveys were financed within the framework of the MATPA project of the Dutch Embassy.
