MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - The index of Russians’ assessment of the situation in the country is 35 points in June, while the index of population’s optimism is 67, according to a news poll released on Tuesday by the state-run public opinion researcher VTsIOM.
In June, assessments of the situation on a nationwide scale, citywide and region-wide have stabilized, and moreover, over the recent months these indexes have demonstrated a growth.
Thus, in June the assessment of the situation in the country was 35 points (edging up a bit as compared with March when it was 34). The present index has grown sizably as compared with the previous year, when it was only 28 points in June 2012.
A similar pace is seen on the regional scale - a growth from 32 to 33 points from March to June, and from 24 to 33 points within the year.
The assessment of the situation on the local scale is even more positive - a growth from 27 to 31 from March to June, and almost a twofold growth as compared with 2012, when the index was 18 in June.
A total of 1,600 people in 138 settlements of 46 regions were polled from June 1 to 2. Statistic error is no more than 3.4 percent.
