How the Ukrainians are going to spend vacations
On May 19-28, 2017 Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) conducted an all-Ukrainian public opinion poll. Data were collected from 2040 respondents living in 108 settlements (PSU) in all oblasts of Ukraine (except for the AR of Crimea) with the method of personal interviewing. The sample was stochastic and is representative of the population of Ukraine aged 18 and above.
In Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts survey was conducted only in the territories that are controlled by the Ukrainian government.
The statistical sampling error (with a probability of 0.95 and for a design effect of 1.5) does not exceed:
3.3% — for indexes close to 50%,
2.8% — for indexes close to 25%,
2.0% — for indexes close to 10%,
1.4% — for indexes close to 5%.
The study showed that as of the second half of May 2017, 59% of Ukrainians do not plan to have a rest. This number decreased compared with 2016 (it was 63%). The number of those who have no opportunity to travel somewhere is 22% (in 2016 it was 25%).
Also, it should be noted that by the percentage of those who plan to go on vacation we have reached the level of the "pre-war" 2013 year.
The visa-free regime has not made a significant impact on plans to have a rest abroad yet. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the study was conducted in May when the visa-free regime has not yet come into force in Ukraine, and the attitude to its introduction was somewhat skeptical.
