Namibia: Afrobarometer Round 9 Results

Summary of results for Namibia, 2021

Afrobarometer, a nonprofit corporation with headquarters in Ghana, is a pan-African, nonpartisan survey research network that provides reliable data on Africans’ experiences and evaluations of democracy, governance, and quality of life.

Eight rounds of surveys have been conducted in up to 39 countries since 1999.

Round 9 surveys are being completed in 2022. Afrobarometer’s national partners conduct face-to-face interviews in the language of the respondent’s choice with nationally representative samples.

The Afrobarometer National Partner in Namibia, Survey Warehouse, interviewed a nationally representative, random, stratified probability sample of 1,200 adult Namibians between 31 October and 16 November 2021.

A sample of this size yields country-level results with a margin of error of +/-3 percentage points at a 95% confidence level.

Previous surveys have been conducted in Namibia in 1999, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2017, and 2019. The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation provided technical backstopping for the survey. Technical details of the survey, including descriptions of stratification and household selection, translation languages, and related information, can be found in the survey Technical Information Form that follows.

Here is an outline of the survey findings from all the questions posed to respondents. We also present the findings by some critical demographics such as gender and place of residence (urban-rural). In addition, responses to all questions in the survey can be disaggregated by gender, age, urban-rural residence, and other demographic variables. Visit our free online data analysis facility at
