The Mauritian Social Attitudes Survey 2002 revealed that "some 91% of all respondents stated that they agreed that, in contemporary Mauritius, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and 94% stated that they thought that in Mauritius nowadays it is more difficult to cope with the cost of living than it was two years ago. All the same, 41% agreed that people have a better quality of life now than 5 years ago".
