The Caucasus Datablog
The Datablog analyses issues and trends in the region using data and public polling. It is a collaboration between OC Media and CRRC Georgia.
Georgians tend to believe that poverty, crime, and corruption have increased in the last decade, while affordable healthcare has become more accessible. But public data does not always match these assessments.
A majority of Georgians feel that the country's parliament does not function effectively and does not represent their interests.
CRRC surveys on discrimination found that there is also more consensus on what challenges they face.
Data suggests that Georgians are reevaluating their preferences for fuel in light of high inflation driven by the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.
Most Armenians feel that the collapse of the USSR was bad for their country, while Georgians are more likely to feel it was a good thing.
Recent data suggests that roughly half of the Georgian public believes that neither the opposition nor the ruling party serves their interests.
