National pride in Ukraine by region and home language

I dislike the tendency to have opinions on topics by recycling cliches and superficial data in circulation. After all there are free and useful resources such as the World Values Survey. There is a question within it that asks “How proud of nationality” one is. The results below are from a survey taken in 2006. The ┬áhome language and regional difference are obvious.

Demographic Category N Very Proud Quite Proud Not Very Proud Not Proud At All
Russian 484 0.224 0.43 0.235 0.112
Ukrainian 421 0.449 0.42 0.101 0.03
Western 212 0.536 0.352 0.085 0.027
Eastern 290 0.19 0.445 0.252 0.113
Central 278 0.353 0.475 0.136 0.036
Southern 137 0.26 0.41 0.2 0.13

But the 1999 survey had results by oblast, a finer grain. I mapped the results below, as well as the raw data. The darker the shade, the more patriotic. Note that Crimea is an outlier.
