Dems fall in every sector but tourism

WHILE THE HIGH cost of living remains the No. 1 area of concern to Barbadians, as shown in the most recent Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES) poll, the state of unemployment in the country is quickly catching up as an issue.

At the same time, the data from the islandwide poll that was conducted earlier this month showed that Barbadians gave the Freundel Stuart administration a failing grade for every major sector that was surveyed, with the exception of tourism.

Of the 1 064 voters questioned, CADRES found that 26 per cent felt the cost of living was the biggest concern, but this was down from 35 per cent in 2013 when the last poll was conducted.

In contrast, unemployment now stands at number two, with 24 per cent, a significant rise from 19 per cent in 2015.  (RRM)
