COTE D'IVOIRE

Key Development Research Involvement

Over the last decade, we have been part of a team that has conducted over 4 national sample surveys, worked with a multiplicity of in-country partners, and provided survey technical assistance in Cote d’Ivoire.

Worked collaboratively with Afrobarometer national partners at Centre de Recherche et de Formation sur le Développement Intégré (CREFDI), and l’Institut National de la Statistique (INS), to complete the surveys.

During Round 4 (2008/2009) we centrally managed all Afrobarometer datasets and samples from across 20 countries including Cote d’Ivoire, ensuring data quality, internal consistency, item and inter-item coding, and the data dictionary. We also ensured that all data was appropriately weighted to correct for oversampling, among other criteria. 

Since Round 5 (2011/2012) we have worked closely with the CREFDI and INS, to design and draw nationally representative survey sites in Cote D’Ivoire. The samples are random, nationally representative, stratified, area-cluster probability sample of the adult (18 years and over) population across Region, Urban and Rural strata, with +/- 2% margin of error. The surveys were conducted in language of respondent’s choice including French and Dioula across the Districts of Ville d'abidjan, Bas-Sassandra, Comoe, Denguele, Goh-Djiboua, Lacs, Lagunes, Montagnes, Sassandra-Marahoue, Savanes, Vallee du Bandama, Woroba and Zanzan. We worked with INS to obtain the most up-to-date census data, including population projections by region, urban and rural, to appropriately allocate the sample. We directly participated in interviewer training, in-fieldwork supervision and data management.

With input into quality assurance, we are honored to have directly contributed to the successful completion of over 4 national sample surveys in Cote d’Ivoire, including surveys in 2008, 2012, 2015 and as planned in 2018.
