Description
  • Abstract

    The aim of the research was to identify, describe and classify changes in the social practices of individuals and households in Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia brought about by the last world economic crisis. The research had several basic tasks. The first one was to identify, describe and create a typology of survival/coping strategies which are used by members of households in SEE societies in an attempt to preserve or improve their economic and social position in the times of crisis. The second task was search for stable patterns of social practices in the fields outside the economic one, i.e. the field of education, which could enable the construction of a typology of broader life strategies. The third aim was to identify and describe changes in consumption patterns of citizens of these societies in the conditions of economic deprivation, that is, changes in their lifestyles. Fourth, we have sought an identification of differences between strategies and lifestyles of the members of different social groups in the studied societies. Finally, the last series of tasks was to acquire data which would allow us to compare these “responses to crisis” in four target societies in general, and among the members of the same social groups in different societies.
Temporal Coverage
  • The survey was carried out in four SEE societies between January and March 2015 on a probability sample of 3,906 respondents in total (national proportional samples of 1,000 respondents in Serbia and Croatia, 1,002 respondents in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and 904 respondents in Slovenia).
Geographic Coverage
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina (BA)
  • Serbia (RS)
  • Slovenia (SI)
  • Croatia (HR)

Sampled Universe
The population represented by the sample represents the population of Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Slovenia, aged over 25, based on the assumption that there was a very small possibility that anyone under the age of 25 could be a fully-fledged creator of a household or that they could directly report on the formulation and realization of strategies.
Sampling
Random sampling : In order to ensure a random sample, the Ipsos Adria standard method of random sampling was used. The secondary sample units were households which were selected based on the random walk method. Rural and urban were defined through settlement size; settlements with fewer than 2000 inhabitants were defined as rural and everything above was defined as urban. The universe for this study were all the citizens of each country who have been living in the country longer than one year and who are able to speak their mother language fluently.
Time Dimension
