Survey rollout begins

Research teams in Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, and the Philippines have recently begun implementation of the user and venue surveys. A total of approximately 1000 public users and 250 operators of public access ICTs will be surveyed across approximately 250 randomly selected public access locations throughout each country. The venue sample was determined using the inventory of public access venues in each country and input from the selected research teams.  The teams also collaborated with us to develop a sampling strategy for selection of users at the venues. All surveys will be researcher-administered and will take place at the public access venues. The user and venue surveys are expected to take 45-60 minutes to complete.

Data collection is scheduled to conclude at the end of October. Once the data have been cleaned and we have completed our preliminary analysis we will make portions of the data publicly available. The survey instruments will be posted on this site in the coming weeks.
