Opening of the agricultural land market: public attitudes in 2019–2020
The survey was conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation in cooperation with the Razumkov Centre sociological service from August 14 to 19, 2020, via face-to-face interviews at the respondents’ place of residence. 2022 respondents aged over 18 y.o. 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 does not exceed 2.3%.
The survey was funded within the MATRA project of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
As of mid-August, public opinion on land sales was divided: on the one hand, 43% of respondents believed that land could not be the subject of a sale in principle. On the other hand, 44% of respondents support buying and selling, but there is no unanimity on the terms of the land circulation among them.
