People’s sense of security in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania has improved in recent years, according to a recent survey.
Of the three nations, the highest degree of financial and material security was reported in Estonia, with falling levels of concern over financial bars to education, rent or utility payment fears, and also property crimes, ERR reported on Monday.
While a sense of national security had improved in all three countries since two years ago, this increase had been greatest in Lithuania, and smallest in Estonia, the survey found. Fears around personal safety and being the victim of crime had fallen in both Estonia and Lithuania, but not in Latvia.
The survey conducted by ERGO insurance firm and Latvian research center SKDS assessed financial, workplace, healthy, personal and physical security, and polled just over 1,000 people from each of the three Baltic states, in the 18-74 age group.
