A poll by the Center for Free Elections and Democracy (CeSID) showed that 60 percent of the population of Serbia believe their living standards have not changed in the past 3 years, 21 percent that they are worse off and 17 percent said they are better off.

    The CeSID poll was conducted in 50 places in Serbia as part of the Swiss PRO program. The poll covered 11,400 people – 200 to 300 in each local community in March and April 2019. The results were presented at Nis city hall.

CeSID Executive Director Ivo Colovic said that Serbians are slightly more satisfied with their living standards and local administrations in this sixth poll than they were during the first poll in 2010. The polled said that their municipal administrations are better and faster but said they are not happy with the large amount of documents that they have to get to do some things and with complicated procedures, he said.

According to Colovic, 66 percent said they are satisfied with places to shop while 44 percent said that youth policies and opportunities for the young are good. He said that 45 percent feel that their local authorities are doing a good job and providing appropriate services while 44 percent said they are not.

Three quarters of the polled said they never used friends and family to get something done in their local administrations.
