Although 77.1% of Venezuelans state that they fully understand the consequences of the global economic crisis during the past year, 54.6% of them affirmed that their familiar economic situation has not been affected and 70.6% have a positive vision about their financial position for the year 2010.
These results were reflected by an opinion poll by Social Investigative Group (GIS XXI), after an analysis of 2,501 interviews proportionally done in all parts of the country between the 26th of April and the 1st of May, with a level of confidence of 95% and margin of error close to 2%.
The spokesperson for the investigative Group, Jose Gregorio Vielma Mora, informed in a press conference from the Hotel Alba Caracas that 58.4% of those surveyed sustained that in one year their economic situation will be better or much better, while 12.2% think they will maintain the same level, which in total reflects a positive vision of 70.6%
Likewise, after the debacle in many economies of the world and in countries with great financial strength, 44.8% of Venezuelans think that for 2010 the economic situation of Venezuela will be better or much better, another 9,8% think it will be the same and less than 30% say it will get worse.
