In the 2012 social networks and media survey done by CRRC in Azerbaijan, respondents were asked about belonging to various groups.
ETA: here’s the breakdown by region – Baku, regional cities, villages 1 = strongly disagree and 4 = strongly agree. All differences are statistically significant.
Capital and rural people much more likely to view themselves as independent people.
Identification with family is strongest in the capital and least important in rural areas? I need to think about this a bit.
Neighborhood identification is strongest in capital, then downward. Again, need to think about this.
Community/municipality is most important in rural area, least in capital.
Capital city people see themselves as citizens of the nation the most.
Not surprisingly, capital city people are the most connected to Azerbaijanis around the world.
And similarly, capital city people are the most globally oriented.
