Description
  • Abstract

    The Afrobarometer project was designed to collect and disseminate information regarding Africans' views on democracy, governance, economic reform, civil society,and quality of life. This particular data collection was concerned with the attitudes and opinions of the citizens of Niger. Respondents in a face-to-face interview were asked to rate their president and the president's administration in overall performance, to state the most important issues facing their nation, and to evaluate the effectiveness of certain continental and international institutions. Opinions were gathered on the role of the government in improving the economy, whether corruption existed in local and national government, whether government officials were responsive to problems of the general population, and whether local government officials, the police, the courts, the overall criminal justice system, and the electoral commission could be trusted. Additionally, respondents were polled about mandated requirements for government representatives, military involvement in foreign affairs, distribution of mining resources, and ethnic group composition of government representation. Economic questions addressed the past, present, and future of the country's and the respondents' living conditions. Background variables include age, gender, ethnicity, education, religious affiliation, language spoke most at home, whether the respondent was the head of the household, current and past employment status, and language used in interview.
  • Abstract

    To gauge, analyze, and compare the social, political, and economic atmosphere in African countries.
  • Methods

    The data are not weighted. However, this collection includes the weight variable WITHINWT that should be used in any analysis. Cases are weighted to account for individual selection probabilities.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Standardized missing values.; Created online analysis version with question text.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..

Sampling
The Afrobarometer uses a clustered, stratified, multi-stage, area probability sample design. The sample is designed as a representative cross-sectionof all citizens of voting age in a given country. The goal is to give every adult citizen an equal and known chance of selection for interview. This objective is reached by (a) strictly applying random selection methods at every stage of sampling and by (b) applying sampling with probability proportionate to population size wherever possible. A randomly selected sample of 1,200 cases allows inferences to national adult populations with a margin of sampling error of no more than plus or minus 3 percent with a confidence level of 95 percent. If the sample size is increased to 2,400, the confidence interval shrinks to plus or minus 2 percent.
Collection Mode
  • face-to-face interview, paper and pencil interview (PAPI)
