  • Abstract

    The Afrobarometer is a comparative series of public attitude surveys that collects and disseminates data regarding Africans' views on democracy, governance, the economy, civil society, and related issues. The data are collected from nationally representative samples in face-to-face interviews in the language of the respondent's choice. Standard topics for the Afrobarometer include attitudes toward and evaluations of democracy, governance and economic conditions, political participation, and national identity. In addition, round 6 surveys included special modules on taxation; tolerance; crime, conflict and insecurity; political corruption; interregional relations; perceptions of China; use of technology; and social service delivery. This particular data collection was concerned with the attitudes and opinions of the citizens of Zambia, and also includes a number of "country-specific questions" designed specifically for respondents of the Zambia survey. These "country specific questions" solicited respondents' opinions on topics such as attitudes toward Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA); expectations of Members of Parliament in their constituency/term; Parliament or Constituency decisions regarding Constituency Development Funds (CDFs); primary source of news regarding deliberations in the National Assembly; domestic and institutional violence; challenges in land acquisition; rights in the sale of land; and attitudes regarding street commerce. The surveys also collect a large set of socio-demographic indicators such as age, gender, education level, poverty level, language and ethnicity, and religious affiliation, as well as political party affiliation. Afrobarometer Round 6 surveys were implemented in 36 countries.

Sampled Universe
Citizens of Zambia aged 18 years or older. Smallest Geographic Unit: Region
The Afrobarometer uses a clustered, stratified, multi-stage, area probability sample design. The sample is designed as a representative cross-section of 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.For more information on sampling, please refer to the Sampling Principles page of the Afrobarometer website.
