This paper presents the part of results obtained by a comprehensive statistical analysis of public opinion in the issue of work-free Sunday, based on a survey undertaken in the Republic of Croatia in October 2017. The research has been made aiming at providing the answer to the crucial question of whether free Sunday can be considered only as of the economic issue or concerns deeply almost all the spheres of life in general. Moreover, the authors want to show and promote free Sunday as socio-economic phenomena which become a political and ideological issue as a fundamental human right and true notion of human freedom and welfare. Besides, as a member of the European Sunday Alliance, Croatia is the first EU member state which promotes free Sunday as one of the measures of active demographic policy. Along with the results of classical statistical processing of public opinion research, the methodology of this research has also involved the hypothesis testing about differences in the proportions as well as post-stratification of the two-step stratified random sample based on gender, age, size of residence, regions and education level. Even more, than two-thirds of respondents consider important or exceptionally important not-working on Sundays and support the maximum limit of that work.
