As many as 65 percent of respondents negatively assess the economic situation of Poland and economic forecasts for our country, according to a study by the Pollster Research Institute. In turn, 44 percent of those interviewed say that their household's economic situation has worsened compared to the pre-pandemic period.
On July 31-August 3, 2020, the Pollster Research Institute conducted the fourth wave of research on the assessment of the economic situation, the risk of losing a job and experiences related to remote work.
"From the beginning of May to the end of June, the percentage of respondents who assessed these dimensions negatively decreased, while in the current wave it has increased again almost to the initial level,” the study reads.
On the other hand, the survey shows that 28 percent of respondents positively assess the current economic situation in Poland, and 14 percent believes that our country's economic forecasts will improve.
"44 percent of respondents say that the economic situation of their households has deteriorated compared to the period before the pandemic, and 37 percent believe that it will worsen even more in the next year," we read.
The opposite opinion is shared by 6 percent, who say that their current economic situation of the household has improved compared to the period before the pandemic. 15 percent estimates that the economic forecasts will improve.
