Between the period 16-29 October 2010, the Afrobarometer surveyed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1200 adult Zimbabwean citizens aged 18 years and above. Face-to-face interviews were conducted by the Afrobarometer team based at the Mass Public Opinion Institute in Harare (Zimbabwe), in three languages: English, Shona and Ndebele. The sample was drawn by taking the smallest geographic units, census Enumeration Areas (EA’s) and stratifying all EA’s across the country into separate lists according to district and urban/rural status. 150 EA’s were then randomly selected from these lists with the probability proportionate to its size in the overall population as represented in 2010 population projections provided by the Zimbabwe Statistics Agency (ZIMSTATS) based on the 2002 census. This ensured that every 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 household. The gender of respondents was alternated during the interviews to ensure equal gender quota.
