On the basis of the materials of the comprehensive sociological research project "Public opinion and efficiency of state policy in the North Caucasus" conducted in 2011 by the Institute of Social Marketing, the article considers the key problems of the North Caucasus and their reflection in the consciousness of the local inhabitants. According to the authors’ conclusion, the Caucasus is a seething region and it creates difficulties for the rest of Russia because it is the region of the integral socio-economic distress and acute ethno-confessional controversies. Overcoming these problems requires significant increase in the efficiency of state policy and its adjustment to the real demands and needs of the population.
