“Russian Public Opinion” is an annual compendium of data through which we seek to consolidate the most important results of the surveys conducted by the Levada-Centre over the last year. It is possible to observe notable long-term trends across a range of topics. Please follow the link to access a free electronic copy of the book (2012-2013).
Since 1992, the Centre for the Study of Public Policy, at the University of Strathclyde, has been conducting barometer surveys to monitor the mass response to transformation, across Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Before this, the Levada-Centre had been monitoring changes in the then Soviet Union. The two centres have combined their resources in a joint project. To visit the joint CSPP/ Levada project please follow the link.
Every month, the Levada-Centre carries out omnibus surveys in order to make current and accurate data available on a constant basis. The results of the nationwide polls are based on a representative sample of 1600 over-18s from 130 sampling points across 45 regions of the Russian Federation. more »
