How Do Polish People Aged 18–24 Feel During the Pandemic?

In 2020 Polish people in general felt clearly worse than in 2019, which can be linked to the Covid-19 pandemic. The percentages of those selecting positive emotions from the list of questions dropped in all categories, with a corresponding rise in declarations of all the negative feelings.
It was notable that the youngest respondents, aged 18–24, unlike the year before, did not feel any better on average than older age groups. They reported feeling certain negative emotions much more frequently, particularly powerlessness (44% compared to 31% of all respondents), depression (32% and 21% respectively) and being disheartened or fed up (47% and 36%). The frequency of these particular feelings among the youngest respondents was the highest for two decades, and can be put down to the experience of being in isolation at home, with on-line teaching and no contact with their peers, which was often their lot during the past year.

More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (367) was conducted using a mixed-mode procedure on a representative sample of named adult residents of Poland, randomly selected from the National Identity Number (PESEL) register.
Respondents independently selected one of the following methods:
– Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI);
– Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI), respondents receiving researchers’ telephone numbers in an introductory letter from CBOS;
– Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), where respondents filled in the online questionnaire independently, gaining access by means of a login and password provided in an introductory letter from CBOS.
In all three cases the questionnaire had the same structure and comprised the same questions. The survey was carried out between 30 November and 10 December 2020 inclusive on a sample of 1010 people (42.2% using the CAPI method, 44% CATI and 13.9% CAWI).
CBOS has been conducting statutory research using the above procedure since May 2020, stating in each case the percentage of personal, telephone and internet interviews.
