Pan-African, independent, non-partisan research network, Afrobarometer, has completed collecting data for its Round 7 surveys in 34 different African countries.
The Round 7 surveys focus on findings on democracy, governance, economic conditions, migration, climate change, gender and other issues concerning the African continent.
The findings of the survey are expected to be released starting from the latter parts of this year and will be available on its website www.afrobarometer.org.
A statement issued by the organization noted that financial challenges almost curtailed the successful completion of the survey, which included 50,000 interviews in 34 countries.
“Despite a challenging funding cycle that threatened to severely curtail its activities, the network succeeded in carrying out its planned surveys in all regions of Africa, including its first-ever national survey in the Gambia”, the statement noted.
It said financial support for Afrobarometer Round 7 has been provided by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) via the U.S. Institute of Peace, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy, Transparency International, and the Germany Development Cooperation (GIZ).
The statement noted that Round 8 surveys are expected to begin in April 2019.
Created in 1999 to give African citizens a voice in policy making, Afrobarometer is a pan-African, independent, non-partisan research network that measures, analyzes, and communicates citizen attitudes across the continent. Afrobarometer conducts face-to-face interviews in the language of the respondent’s choice with nationally representative samples.
