The Afrobarometer National Partner in Sierra Leone, the Institute for Governance Reform (IGR), interviewed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1,200 adult Sierra Leoneans between 9 and 31 March 2020. A sample of this size yields country-level results with a margin of error of +/-3 percentage points at a 95% confidence level. Previous surveys have been conducted in Sierra Leone in 2012, 2015, and 2020. The Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) provided technical backstopping for the survey. Technical details of the survey, including descriptions of stratification and household selection, translation languages, and related information, can be found in the survey Technical Information Form that follows.

Below is an outline of the survey findings from all the questions posed to respondents. We also present the findings by some critical demographics such as gender and place of residence (urban-rural).
