Key Development Research Involvement

Since 2014, we have been part of a team that has so far worked with a multiplicity of in-country partners and provided survey technical assistance to conduct a national sample survey in Sao Tome & Principe, working collaboratively with Afrobarometer national partners at AfroSondagem (CVE) and National Institute of Statistics, to complete the surveys.

During Round 6 surveys (2014/2015) we worked closely with Afrosondagem and National Institute of Statistics, to design and draw nationally representative survey sites in Sao Tome & Principe. 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 +/- 3% margin of error. The surveys were conducted in language of respondent’s choice including Portuguese and Creolo across the regions of São Tomé and Principe. 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 3 national sample surveys in Sao Tome & Principe, including surveys in 2015 and as planned in 2018.
