Ukraine’s employment rate on rise

The number of employed Ukrainians increased by 8% compared to April 2022.

This is evidenced by the eighth round of the study "Socio-political attitudes amid Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine," run by Gradus Research, Ukrinform reports.

According to the survey, currently, 61% of respondents say they are employed. Last year, in April 2022, 53% of the surveyed citizens had a job.

The share of those who have a job and are now working, against last year, increased from 32% to 51%.

The logical consequence of such dynamics is higher stability of people’s incomes. Thus, currently, 87% of employed respondents say they get their salary whereas in April 2022 there were 70% of such respondents.

At the same time, the research indicates that currently, 36% of respondents are unemployed, which is 5% below April 2022 results.

Gradus Research has conducted eight rounds of research on the attitudes of Ukrainians amid the war. The eighth stage of the survey was run on April 24-25, 2023, when 1,000 respondents filled out a questionnaire in a mobile application.

The target group is males and females aged 18 to 60 living in Ukrainian cities with a population of over 50,000.
