The Afrobarometer Network has organized a training workshop in Cameroon in readiness for the country’s first ever Afrobarometer Survey.
The Network, in its quest to expand the Survey to other parts of Africa, conducted a feasibility study in Cameroon to identify a possible partner to undertake the job. The Centre d’Estudes et de Recherche en Economie et Gestion (CEREG) based in University of Yaounde in Cameroon (CEREG) was selected as the National Partner (NP) for Cameroon out of four institutions in a highly competitive bidding.
An Afrobarometer team led by Daniel Armah-Attoh, the Project Manager (Anglophone West Africa), took participants through the various sections of the Afrobarometer Round 5 Manual.
The training also focused on the processes involved in questionnaire and data template indigenization, development of country-specific questions and drawing of a nationally representative sample for fieldworker training and data management among others.
The maiden Cameroon Afrobarometer Survey is scheduled to take off before the end of the first quarter of 2013.
