Insgesamt betrachtet lässt sich Zeitraum 1990 bis 2004 ein beachtliches bis hohes Maß an positiven Retrospektivbewertungen der DDR durch die Ostdeutschen nachweisen. Das Niveau von DDR-Nostalgie differiert allerdings in Bezug auf die jeweils betrachtete size der positiven Orientierungen der neuen Bundesbürger gegenüber der ehemaligen DDR.
