Common perception of the stabilization of economic situation without any signs of its improvement dominated prior to the presidential elections. Social optimism has significantly grown during the elections. Expectations of the positive development have slightly diminished during one month following the elections.

Key words: households’ social wellbeing, social optimism, social pessimism, personal economic risks and presidential elections.
