Over half of Ukrainians do not work during war, less than quarter work remotely or partially - opinion poll

More than half (53%) of Ukrainians who worked before the war are currently unemployed, 22% work as usual, 21% work remotely or partially, and only 2% have found a new job, according to a nationwide survey "Adaptation of Ukrainians to the conditions of war", conducted by the Rating sociological group on March 19.

As noted in the results of the study, most of all the loss of work affected the residents of the east of the country (74%), young people under 35 years old (60%) and those who left their city (66%).

The economic situation as a result of the war did not change only for 18% of citizens, for 52% it deteriorated significantly, for 28% it rather worsened.

Some 40% of respondents believe that their savings will last only a month. However, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic taught Ukrainians how to save money and the percentage of those who increased their material security during the crisis grew: the Rating reminded that during the first quarantine in April 2020, 55% believed that they had enough savings just for a month.

In the course of the study, 1,000 respondents over the age of 18 were interviewed using the CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews) method in all regions, except for the temporarily occupied territories of Crimea and Donbas. The sample is representative in terms of age, gender, and type of settlement. The error of the representativeness of the study with a confidence probability of 0.95: no more than 3.1%.
