Survey: Most Romanians think country's situation worse than 30 years ago

July 21, 2022

Most Romanians consider the country's situation is worse than it was 30 years ago, but most young people between 18 and 29 years old think the country's situation is better now, according to the survey called “Romania 2050 agenda. Conversation about Romania's future – First edition,” made by INSCOP Research upon the recommendation of Strategic Thinking Group.   Asked what the they think about the general situation in Romania, compared to what it was 30 years ago, 54% of respondents say it is worse, 35.6% that it is better, 8.5% is the same, while 1.9% would not answer.   On the other hand, over 43% of Romanians consider the general situation in Romania will be better 30 years from now, in 2050 (57% of young people aged between 18 and 29 think the country's situation will be better in 2050), 14.3% that it will be the same, 34.5% that it will be worse than the present one. 7.7% did not answer.   According to the survey, the people who think, in a significant percentage higher than the average, that the situation in Romania is better than in 1989 are: young people under 30, people with higher education, white collars and people who declare their monthly incomes allow them to have everything they need without any restrictions.   People with incomes that are not enough for the necessary things and people with primary education believe in a higher percentage than the average that Romania's situation is worse than in 1989.   59.9% of respondents declare they have a good opinion about the possibility to set up regions uniting several counties, 34.4% say they have a bad opinion and 5.8% do not know or would not answer.   Young people aged under 30 tend to have a good opinion about the possibility to set up regions uniting several counties to an extent greater than the rest of the population.   The highest percentages of respondents who declare they had a bad opinion about the possibility to set up regions uniting several counties who are registered among passive inactive people and those who do not have accounts on social networks.   Data were collected over May 23 and June 14, through CATI method (phone interviews), on a simple sample of 1,500 persons, representative for significant social-demographic categories (sex, age, occupation) for people aged 18 and above. The maximum error admitted is 2.53%, for a confidence degree of 95%.
