Project Summary

Based on his research on a March 29 exit poll for the 1998 elections, Kucheriv proposed to improve the nature of exit polls in use for the 1999 Presidential election, adapting US models to the Ukrainian context. His analysis of the 1998 polls aim to determine the voting patterns af demographic and ideological groups, the groups who did not obtain sufficient votes to be in the Rada. Kucheriv contends that this data will be beneficial in the on-going process of democratization within Ukraine.
