Afrobarometer Survey Series

Investigator(s): Michael Bratton, Nicolas van de Walle, et al.

The Afrobarometer series was developed by select Africanist scholars with funds from a variety of sources: the National Science Foundation, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Danish Governance Trust Fund at the World Bank, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Michigan State University, and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The series represents a large-scale, cross-national survey research project designed to systematically map mass attitudes to democracy, markets, and civil society in more than a dozen sub-Saharan African nations, and ultimately, to track the evolution of such attitudes in selected nations over time. More specifically, the series furnishes research data on democracy, governance, livelihoods, macroeconomics and markets, social capital, political regimes and transition, conflict and crime, political participation, and national identity in sub-Saharan Africa. Afrobarometer surveys are conducted periodically in such sub-Saharan African nations as Botswana, Cape Verde, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The series is partly modeled on Eurobarometer studies of the last 24 years, the new Eurobarometer studies of the last ten years, the Latinobarometer, and the East Asianbarometer. It thus enables comparison across continents.
