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 Ghana.

Worked collaboratively with Afrobarometer national partners at Ghana Centre for Democracy (CDD), Practical Sampling International (PSI), and the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) to complete the surveys.

During Round 4 (2008/2009) we centrally managed all Afrobarometer datasets and samples from across 20 countries including Ghana, 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 CDD and GSS to design and draw nationally representative survey sample for Ghana. The samples are random, nationally representative, stratified, area-cluster probability sample of the adult (18 years and over) population across 10 Regions, Urban and Rural strata, with +/- 3% margin of error. The surveys were conducted in language of respondent’s choice including English, Akan, Ewe, Ga/Dangbe, Dagbani, Hausa, Waala, and Dagaree across the regions of Western, Central, Greater Accra, Volta, Eastern, Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern, Upper East and Upper West.  

With input into quality assurance, we are honored to have directly contributed to the successful completion of over 4 national sample surveys in Ghana, including surveys in 2008, 2012, 2015 and 2017.
