Our online data analysis (ODA) is an easy way for you to analyse data on Africa from Afrobarometer’s survey Rounds 1-5 (1999-2012).
Here are some simple instructions to help you get started with the ODA.
Select which round of surveys you would like to use from the top slider bar.
Next, click on “Select countries” and select the country you would like to use. Alternatively, select the “Select all” option if you’d like to use all countries.
Select a survey question. These are divided under various thematic tabs. For example: economy, taxation, democracy and politics and so on.
Alternatively, search a word or phrase using the “search” function.
Once you have selected the question you would like to analyse, you will be presented with the tabulated results as well as a column graph.
You can change the type of graph by selecting the options to the right of the column graph.
Now that you have your chart, you can right click and save the graph as a .jpg, .png or .pdf format. You can also select the Print option.
After you have done the above steps, you can select another variable under the “Choose a crossing variable” drop-down menu.
Once you have selected a variable the tabulated results will appear below.
If you would like to produce graphs or a map, select one of the options along the right-hand side:
We hope you enjoy using our ODA tool.
