Almost half Lithuanians think economic situation got worse
Monday, September 22, 2014
In August, 12 percent of the polled Lithunian residents said that the economic situation in the country had improved over the last two months. 42 percent said it had not changed, while 44 percent said it had gotten worse.
Three years after the last Eurobarometer survey, it is clear that, despite the economic crisis, Europeans' concern about the environment has not diminished. In an overwhelming consensus, 95 percent of the 28.000 interviewed citizens said that protecting the environment was important to them personally and many thought more could be done in this area, the European Commission said.
In July, 17 percent of the polled stated that, over the last two months, economic situation in Lithuania had improved, while 56 percent said that it had remained unchanged, and 23 percent indicated that economic situation had worsened. 4 percent of respondents had no opinion on the matter.
More than half of Lithuanians (52 percent) believe the situation in the country has gotten worse recently, whereas 42 percent say the situation has been improving. Two percent of those polled have no opinion on it, a Baltijos Tyrimai poll, commissioned by ELTA and conducted on 15-30 July, shows.
