Between 2nd December 2011 and 27th February 2012, the Afrobarometer surveyed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of adult Ugandans. The total number of interviews conducted was 6200; this included a nationally representative Afrobarometer sample of 2400 adult Ugandans and an additional oversample of 3800 conducted in USAID Uganda mission focus districts. This Summary of results draws exclusively from the 2400 Afrobarometer sample. Face-to-face interviews were conducted by Wilsken Agencies, Ltd. in the language of the respondent’s choice. The survey covered both urban and rural areas, as well as all four administrative regions of the country and Kampala as a separate firth region. The sample was drawn by taking the smallest geographic units, Census Enumeration Areas (EAs) and stratifying all EAs across the country into separate lists according to administrative region and urban or rural status. 300 EAs were then randomly selected from these lists with the probability proportionate to its size in the overall population as represented in the 2002 Population and Housing Census (2010 projections). This ensures that every eligible adult had an equal and known chance of being selected. Eight households were then randomly selected within each EA, and a respondent 18 years of age or older was randomly selected from each selected household. A gender quota ensured that every other interview must be with a female. A sample of this size is sufficient to yield an overall margin of error of +/- 2 percent at a confidence level of 95 percent. Local language translations were done in 14 languages: Luganda, Runyankole-Rukiga, Runyoro-Rutooro, Lugbara, Alur, Luo, Ateso, Ngakirimojong, Lumasaba. Madi, Lugwere, Kupsabiny Lusoga and Japdhola.
