Languages of publication
In the following publication the results of empirical research are presented. Their purpose was to define the consumer ethnocentrism level of the inhabitants in Poland, Hungary and Ukraine. The main source material was achieved thanks to direct interviews in three towns: Rzeszów (Poland), Debrecen (Hungary), Iwano-Frankowsk (Ukraine), on the sample of 1200 respondents (400 people in every town). International CETSCALE questionnaire has been used as a measuring instrument. It was validated. The analyses presented clearly show ethnocentric tendencies, however, the highest CET scale values were achieved in the Ukrainian community. There is also a meaningful influence of socio-economic factors on the level of ethnocentrism in the three researched groups.
