Summary of results
2021

The Afrobarometer National Partner in Malawi, Centre for Social Research, interviewed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1,200 adult Malawians from 17th November to 4th December, 2020. A sample of this size yields country-level results with a margin of error of +/-3% at a 95% confidence level. Previous surveys have been conducted in Malawi in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012, 2014 and 2017. The Institute for Development Studies of the University of Nairobi provided technical backstopping for the survey. Technical details of the survey, including descriptions of stratification and household selection, translation languages, and related information, can be found in the survey Technical Information Form that follows immediately.

Below is an outline of the survey findings from all the questions posed to respondents. We also present the findings by some critical demographics such as gender and place of residence (urban-rural and peri-urban).
