The Afrobarometer is an independent, nonpartisan research project that measures the social, political and economic atmosphere in Africa.
Afrobarometer surveys are conducted in more than a dozen African countries and are repeated on a regular cycle. Because the instrument asks a standard set of questions, countries can be systematically compared. Trends in public attitudes are tracked over time.
Results are shared with decision makers, policy advocates, civic educators, journalists, researchers, donors and investors, as well as average Africans who wish to become more informed and active citizens.
The Afrobarometer Round 1 and 2 are deposited in ASEP/JDS databank, allowing for interactive data analysis and free download of the official data files.
