Instituted in 1999, Afrobarometer is a Pan-African, non-partisan survey research project that conducts public attitude surveys on democracy, governance, economic conditions, civil society and other topics in more than 30 countries across all regions in Africa. Afrobarometer surveys are conducted on a regular cycle in countries that are surveyed.

The Goal

Its goal is to give the public a voice in policymaking by providing high-quality public opinion data to policymakers, policy advocates, civil society organizations, academics, news media, donors and investors and everyday Africans.
