What is the Afrobarometer?
The Afrobarometer is an independent, nonpartisan research project that measures the social, political, and economic atmosphere in Africa.
Presently, Afrobarometer surveys are conducted in 35 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.
