Socio-political attitudes of the residents of Ukraine and support rating for parties and political leaders: May- June, 2016
On May, 20 – June, 2 2016 Kyiv International Institute of Sociology conducted all-Ukrainian public opinion poll by clients request. Sample consisted of 2043 respondents living in 110 settlements in all regions of Ukraine (except for AR of Crimea). Sample was 4-staged with quota selection on the last stage, and is representative for the population of Ukraine aged 18 and above.
In Luhansk and Donetsk regions poll was conducted only on the territories controlled by Ukrainian government.
Statistical sample error (with probability 0.95 and design-effect of 1.5) does not exceed 3.3% for indicators close to 50%, 2.8% for indicators close to 25%, 2.0% for indicators close to 10%, 1.4% for indicators close to 5%.
Commentary of KIIS experts: «Sociologists` work became much more difficult over the past two years because of the issues related to the opportunities of polling in Donbas region. There is no reliable statistics about the amount of people living in controlled and uncontrolled parts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Sociologists have to decide on the sample distribution under different hypothesis – with or without considering migration, with or without considering uncontrolled territories etc. That is why data may differ from poll to poll by a few percentage points (especially it concerns the ratings). In this particular survey sample was distributed only on the controlled territories of Donbas in the same proportion that, according to the CEC data, corresponds to the proportion of Donbas voters in the last parliamentary elections (October, 2014)».
