Afrobarometer is a comparative series of public attitude surveys on democracy, governance, economic conditions, and related issues implemented in more than 35 African countries. Through the survey findings, ordinary citizens are availed a platform to raise their individual voices to best inform the policy-making processes in matters that affect them. Previously, six public attitude surveys (from 1999-2014) have been successfully conducted by Afrobarometer and now Round 7 is underway.
Afrobarometer work in Tanzania is coordinated by REPOA. Fieldwork for Round 7 is currently on-going both in Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar. Thirty trained research assistants grouped in six teams (as per table attached) are currently in different part s of the country collecting data on “Attitude to Democracy and Markets in Tanzania”. The field work is expected to last in one month for data to be analysed and findings disseminated to the public and various Government Ministries. Other African countries involved in Round 7 Survey are: Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Cape Verde, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Benin, Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Mali and Senegal.
