Approval Ratings

This survey was conducted October 22–28, 2020, among a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents. The sample was comprised of 1601 people aged 18 or older in 137 municipalities of 50 regions of the Russian Federation. The survey was conducted as a personal interview in respondents’ homes. The answer distribution is presented as percentages of the total number of participants along with data from previous surveys.

The statistical error of these studies for a sample of 1600 people (with a probability of 0.95) does not exceed:

3.4% for indicators around 50%

2.9% for indicators around 25%/75%

2.0% for indicators around 10%/90%

1.5% for indicators around 5%/95%

 

For a full picture of fluctuations in the approval of the national state of affairs and government institutions, see indicators.
In April–July 2020 surveys were conducted by means of computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI).
