Les Béninois continuent de faire confiance aux institutions de la république

Selon la plus récente enquête d’Afrobaromètre au Bénin, la majorité des Béninois fait confiance aux institutions de la république.

Selon l’enquête, la plupart de ceux qui font confiance au pouvoir exécutif désapprouvent la performance du gouvernement dans la gestion de l’économie, l’amélioration des conditions de vie des pauvres, la création d’emploi et la stabilité des prix. La confiance aux institutions ne varie pas selon le sexe et le milieu de résidence.


Help Afrobarometer give voice to Africans

If you use and value data from Afrobarometer, please take a moment to help ensure that we can continue to give voice to ordinary Africans.

We are currently raising funds for Round 7 and 8 surveys, but funders won’t keep supporting our data collection unless they know that the data is being used, especially by Africans. By answering our 3 brief questions, you can help keep Africa's voice alive.

AD20: Zambians overwhelmingly disapprove of domestic violence and corporal punishment

An overwhelming majority of Zambians say they are opposed to physical violence as a way to discipline women and children, Afrobarometer’s most recent survey reveals. Disapproval of wife battering is so widespread in Zambia that there is little or no difference in views across genders, urban/rural locations, or education levels.

Opposition to corporal punishment of children, both at home and at school, is also the majority view, though less widespread than disapproval of physical discipline of wives.


Radio remains top choice for news even as traditional media loses ground

Radio remains the dominant news source for most Africans; more than 60% of the people in every state except Egypt consume radio news, according to Afrobarometer's survey of 34 countries. Both television and internet are growing as sources of news, chipping at radio's
dominance, but 77% of people on the continent listen to radio news at least a few times every month, the survey shows.
