Practice for Ukraine’s citizens to contact with institutions and organizations


The article presents the results of two sociological studies of practices of the contact of Ukrainian citizens with authority bodies and organizations. The performed factor analysis testifies that the forms of practices are distin, guished by their inclination to contact with those institutions or organiza, tions which require similar habits or resources. The differentiation and complication of practices occur. In particular, the practices of contacts which were fixed in 2002 with public,political institutions are divided in 2007 into separate practices “contacts with the central power” and “con, tacts with controlling institutions”.
