Posted on Feb 04, 2022 at 02:25

This was a study done by IPOR in collaboration with The University of Connecticut in the United States of America. Basically the study was trying to gauge people's propensity to vote in presence of social welfare policies as regards to other policies in developing countries.

The specific objectives of the study were to assess how people in Malawi prioritize welfare provision and to measure preferences for specific welfare interventions among Malawians

The study targeted Malawian citizens of 18 years and above. Data was collected from five districts spread across Malawi namely Mzimba, Lilongwe, Dedza, Chikwawa and Zomba. A sample size of 1200 respondents was drawn from 75 Enumeration Areas in the five districts.

The project started and ended in November, 2021 and a clean dataset was presented to our partner the University of Connecticut.
