Baden-Württemberg: Survey: Baden-Württembergers struggle with too much bureaucracy

According to a survey, people in the southwest see black - and are grumpy. The reasons are war, inflation and constant anger at too much bureaucracy.

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - A large part of the people in the southwest struggle with state regulations and ordinances. 83 percent of respondents to a study published on Wednesday find that there is too much bureaucracy in Germany. Every second person in Baden-Württemberg believes that legal requirements for companies are slowing down economic development. This was the result of the "BaWü-Check" of the daily newspapers in the south-west. The Allensbach Institute for Demoscopy surveyed more than 1,000 adults in the state in June.

The majority of the displeasure is based on personal experience: 69 percent of citizens stated that they had been annoyed by too much bureaucracy in their own visits to authorities or in contact with officials in the past few years. The respondents were particularly annoyed by the obsession with regulation when it came to taxes, health care and construction.

The pessimism of the people of Baden-Württemberg also continues. Due to the war in Ukraine and fears of inflation, people in the south-west are still optimistic about the future at an all-time low. Only twelve percent are hopeful about the future - that's even less than in the rest of the country. In a nationwide survey conducted at the same time, 28 percent of the population were optimistic about the coming months.

Above all, the price increases of the past few months are a burden for the people in the country. 53 percent limit themselves when driving and try to save fuel, 51 percent go to restaurants less often, 48 limit themselves when buying clothes and 43 percent when buying groceries.

The 9-euro ticket, however, is a generational affair: while two-thirds of the under-30s already have one or are planning to buy one, among the over-60s it is just over one in three.
