Survey: Czechs born after 1989 are conservative and optimistic
The generation born after 1989 wants to live their lives doing what they enjoy, but they do not know how to do it.
A 2017 Deloitte survey based on the views of almost 8,000 millennials, defined as people born after 1982, across 30 countries worldwide reveals that ‘mature economies’ show less optimism than so-called ‘emerging markets’. 48% of millennials in emerging markets foresee improvements in the social and political situations while the proportion in mature economies is about half that figure, a mere 25%, the Deloitte report reads.
A survey by Česká spořitelna and Kantar Agency published on April 11, 2018 examined the attitudes of a sample of 1,036 Czechs between 18 and 28 years of age.
11% of Czech millennials have a university degree and 34% have finished their studies with a leaving exam.
According to the survey, most millennials (51%) have no clear idea about their future career, but 84% of them believe that everyone is the architect of his or her destiny.
Czech millennials are also an optimistic generation, with 83% of them looking forward to the future, compared to 69% of Czechs above 30 years old.
The most important thing for these young people is, besides family and health, finding work that they will enjoy (53%). As for the optimal amount of savings to have at hand, two or three months’ salary was the most common response (28%).
Traveling is an important priority for many millennials. However, Czech millennials do not want to leave the country for a long time, and most of them do not want to move from the place where they live (82%).
