Baltic News Network - - News -

Lat­vians see teach­ers, bank work­ers and doc­tors as the most trusted pro­fes­sion, while politi­cians, civil ser­vants and judges are the least trusted trades ac­cord­ing to the re­sults of an opin­ion poll con­ducted in Au­gust.

In the poll car­ried out by poll­ster Lat­vian SKDS and busi­ness law firm Primus, re­spon­dents were asked to as­sess with marks from one to 10 to what an ex­tent they think peo­ple work­ing in cer­tain pro­fes­sions can be trusted with 10 mean­ing «they can be fully trusted» and one mean­ing «they can­not be trusted»

The poll re­sulted in high­est av­er­age in­di­ca­tor (7.18) be­ing at­trib­uted to teach­ers, fol­lowed by bank work­ers (6.83), doc­tors (6.56), shop as­sis­tants (6.24) and po­lice­men (6.06).

Mean­while, the low­est av­er­age in­di­ca­tor went to politi­cians (3.44), but civil ser­vants, judges and lawyers did some­what bet­ter with in­di­ca­tors of 5.10, 5.46 and 5.73, re­spec­tively. More than a fifth of re­spon­dents, how­ever, noted it was hard to say to what an ex­tent can lawyers and judges be trusted.
