Party ratings in Ukraine

If parliamentary elections were to be held next Sunday, what political party would you vote for? (recurrent, 2010-2012)



In the tab Population strata you can find the level of support for the parties not only on the nationwide level but among many different social groups: e.g., men, villagers, residents of the eastern provinces etc. Under the Parties tab one can see which societal groups support a party most or least. Likewise, one can see which societal groups have the greatest percent of people that have not decided on their preferences or that are not going to the elections. In the tab Complex comparison one can compare the levels of support of various political groups among different strata. For instance, what is greater: the support of the Communist Party among elderly people or of right-winged Svoboda in Western Ukraine?

The results are shown as a share of all the respondents, not only those who expressed their intention to participate the elections.

To make correct conclusions from these data, one needs to consider the sampling error, which is different for each stratum, as well as variable, depending on closeness of the figure to 50%. All surveys were conducted with a sample of ~ 2000 respondents. With this sample, credible research of narrow segments, such as the women of Western Ukrainian cities, is not possible.

The strata very poor, poor, lower middle class and higher middle class are defined according to the respondents estimations of the well-being of their family. This question also allows us to select the group the rich, but its size is too small for reliable analysis. The sections satisfied with current situations and dissatisfied, correspondingly, are selected according the respondents estimation of the direction of events in Ukraine.

The following regional distribution is used: South Crimea, Odessa, Kherson, Mykolajiv oblast; Center Kyiv, Vinnitsa, Zhytomir, Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Poltava, Sumy, Khmelnytskyj, Cherkasy, Chernihiv oblast; West Volyn, Transcarpathian, Ivano-Frankivsk , Lviv, Rivne, Ternopil, Chernivtsi oblast; East Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhya, Luhansk, Kharkiv oblast.
