Lithuanian residents don’t like to discuss problems with authorities


Inhabitants of Baltic states are the least likely amongst the Europeans to discuss problems with authorities. This is the result of Eurobarometer survey that was published last week.  

Respondents were asked whether during the last two years they discussed social matters with representatives of local governments or regional authorities.

Estonians (12 %) very rarely discuss public issues with authorities. There are a little bit more people like that in Lithuania (13 %). In Latvia there is 14 % of people who do discuss social problems. The average in European countries is equal 24 %.

Accroding to the survey, Lithuanian inhabitants don’t like to discuss social problems on-line. Only 18 % admitted to doing so. European average is 28 %.

1000 persons from Lithuania took part in the survey.
