Summary of results
2021

The Afrobarometer National Partner in Nigeria, NOIPolls, interviewed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1,599 adult Nigerians between 20 January and 13 February 2020. A sample of this size yields country-level results with a margin of error of +/-2.5 percentage points at a 95% confidence level. Previous surveys have been conducted in Nigeria in1999, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2017. CDD-Ghana 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.

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).
