Survey schedule

Afrobarometer provides reliable and accurate data on the views ordinary Africans.  To do this, we conduct public attitude surveys in more than 30 countries in Africa.

A lot of planning goes into conducting a survey and it usually takes 12 months to survey all our countries (a ‘round’). We are currently in Round 6.

The remaining schedule for Round 6 surveys in 2015:

  • January: Madagascar, Niger, Swaziland, Uganda
  • February: Gabon, Mozambique
  • March: Burkina Faso
  • April: Tunisia
  • Dates to be decided: Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Morocco, South Africa, Sudan
  • Surveys postponed: Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, South Sudan
