Nationally representative surveys started in Ukraine (along with other countries, that arose after the collapse of the Soviet Union) only in the early 90s.  Several surveys in the framework of the ESS and ISSP  have been conducted during the last 5-7 years, but these surveys are irregular. Therefore,  long series of social indicators are a rarity for Ukraine.
The report addresses social indicators available for the analysis, obtained mainly in the polls of the Kyiv international Institute of sociology from 1991-1994 until 2013.  These include indicators of well-being, health, happiness, morality (in particular, the level of xenophobia and modernization (in particular, the use of the Internet). We discuss the possibility of combining the individual social indicators in integrated indicators describing the state of the country.
