Description
  • Abstract

    The Afrobarometer project assesses attitudes toward democracy, markets, and civil society in several sub-Saharan African nations. This survey of Nigeria recorded Nigerian citizens' opinions about social issues and about recent political and economic changes within their country. Respondents were asked to rate how satisfied they felt with their lives presently and to give their overall assessment of the performance of the current government. They also rated how well the current government was handling problems such as creating jobs, keeping prices low, narrowing the income gap between rich and poor, and fighting government corruption. Respondents were also queried about their interest in politics, how often they discussed politics with other people, and whether they could name various government officials. Respondents were asked to rate the importance of certain aspects of a democracy such as majority rule, freedom to criticize the government, and regular elections. Respondents also rated how much they trusted fellow citizens such as relatives, neighbors, members of their tribe, members of other tribes, and Nigerian President Obassanjo, as well as how much they trusted institutions such as traditional rulers, local government authorities, the police, the courts, and others. They were also asked to rate how much they trusted social institutions such as churches, mosques, trade unions, banks, and businesses. Opinions were elicited on how often Nigerians broke the law by engaging in such acts as throwing rubbish in public places, disregarding traffic signs and lights, selling goods without a trader's license, evading income taxes, not paying for services like piped water, and offering bribes to public servants. Demographic variables include political party affiliation, income level, number of children under 18 in household, gender, age, education, religion, and occupation.
