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.

Datablog | How financially literate are people in Georgia?

CRRC Georgia data suggests that about half the Georgian public has a basic understanding of interest and inflation rates.

Datablog | How has Georgia changed in the last decade?

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.

Datablog | Georgians sceptical about functioning of parliament

A majority of Georgians feel that the country's parliament does not function effectively and does not represent their interests.

Datablog | Nudging Georgians to self-test for HIV

Offering people a reward for testing for HIV and making tests more accessible can encourage young people to self-test.

Datablog | Georgians increasingly feel mistreated by the government

Up to 60% of the Georgian public felt that the government treated people like them unfairly in 2021.

Datablog | Georgians increasingly agree that minority groups face challenges in Georgia

Datablog | Inflation and a Georgian’s choice of fuel

Datablog | How Armenians and Georgians feel about the dissolution of the Soviet Union

Datablog | Georgian politics leave many feeling alienated

Data suggests that 51% of the public believes they don’t have a say in what the government does.

Datablog | Do politicians serve Georgia’s public interests?

Recent data suggests that roughly half of the Georgian public believes that neither the opposition nor the ruling party serves their interests.

Fierce, independent journalism

Let’s be honest, the media situation in the Caucasus is grim. Every day we are accused of ‘serving the enemy’ whoever that enemy may be. Our journalists have been harassed, arrested, beaten, and exiled. But nevertheless, we persevere. For us this is a labour of love. Unfortunately, we cannot run OC Media on love alone, journalism is expensive and funding is scarce. Our sole mission is to serve the interests of all peoples of the region. You can support us today for as little as $1 a month and join us in the fight for a better Caucasus.
