Version V1

The Afrobarometer project assesses attitudes toward democracy, markets, and civil society in several sub-Saharan African nations. This survey of Uganda recorded Ugandan citizens' opinions about social issues and about recent political and economic changes within their country. Respondents' views were elicited on the former regime, political life and membership in organizations, the meaning of the word "democracy," trustworthiness of the government, and responsibility of the government toward its citizens, with some specifics on crime, education, health, poverty, AIDS, and the position of women in society. Respondents were also surveyed about their views on living conditions, income gaps, domestic violence, and the press. In addition, information was elicited on whether the respondent was a registered voter, how secure he or she felt in the community, and how the respondent viewed the 2002 referendum in Uganda. Background information on respondents includes gender, age, religion, language at home, number of adults in each household (aged over 18 years), modernization of the family dwelling, literacy in English, and educational attainment.
