Trust and Belonging in SofiaPosted: February 5, 2009
Here’s the link. Two things visually jump out at you. First, that Norway and Hungary score extraordinarily high and secondly, that the UK and Bulgaria register so extraorinarily low.
UK, Hungary and Norway seem to fit my stereotypes. I have one story about the Hungarian man on the train who exhibited significant trust. I was impressed- but that’s my only experience.
Bulgaria, is for me, the anomaly here. The article focuses on UK, so the response from Bulgarian readers is pretty low. But i’d be interested in whether Bulgar and Roma feel this way. They do not border any other EU states and that may say something as well. Is this consistent with the region? or uniquely Bulgarian?
Stats and numbers can be skewed any number of ways. But, would anyone in Sofia like to offer a thought?
