Most of the population of Georgia believes that the country is moving in the wrong direction — the data of the survey conducted in the fall of 2022 was distributed by the International Republican Institute IRI.

30% of the survey participants believe that the country is moving in the right direction. In the wrong — 62%. 8% answered "I don't know".

Most of all in Georgia believed that the country was moving in the right direction, in February 2013, after the change of power in the country, when the Georgian Dream became the ruling party. Then 57% of respondents answered the question positively. This indicator was the lowest in March 2016 — 16%.

The survey was conducted in the fall of 2022 by direct interviewing at home. • Sample — 1,500 residents of Georgia over the age of 18. The error is +/- 2.5%.

Optimists and pessimists

47% of the survey participants believe in a better future and rate as optimistic expectations of change. 38% are neutral and apathetic and 15% look to the future with fear and anxiety.

The highest indicator of optimistic expectations was in Georgia in late 2012-early 2013. Now it is the lowest in the last ten years. 

Current situation

2% of respondents describe the current economic situation for their family as "very good". As "relatively good" — 48%.

Up to 16% of respondents called the economic situation of their family "very bad" and 35% called it "relatively bad".

These indicators have improved compared to previous years — for example, in the summer of 2020, 22% said the situation of families was very bad and 43% — relatively bad.

In general, 1% believe that the economic situation in the country has changed dramatically for the better, and 12% think that it has "improved relatively".

More than 60 percent give a negative assessment: 31% — the situation has "deteriorated greatly", 30% — "relatively worsened". 26% believe that there have been no significant changes over the year.

The main problems

Unemployment continues to lead the list of problems that residents of Georgia call. 41% put it in the first place, 58% — in the second.

In second place among the problems is price growth (18%/48%), in third place is poverty (7%/16%).

5% of respondents identified external conflicts and war outside Georgia as the most important problem for themselves, and internal ethnic and religious conflicts — 2%.

The list contains a huge number of problems, from problems of medicine and healthcare, but the votes were further divided, and all of them eventually scored less than 3%.

First of all, Georgia needs to solve the problem of economic development, 37% of respondents believe. Every fifth respondent put the restoration of territorial integrity in the first place. The fulfillment of the terms of the Association agreement between Georgia and the EU was put in the first place by 6%.
