You are here

This report presents the results of a population survey based on 4,127 one-one-one interviews conducted in June and July 2015 with randomly selected adults in 17 cities and Territoires in Ituri, North Kivu, and South Kivu. The margin of sampling error is ±5 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. The distribution of respondents and locations represented by the survey can be found below.

This poll is the second of a series of polls that will be conducted to provide reliable data and analysis on peace, security, justice and re-construction in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The project is a joint initiative of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with MONUSCO Civil Affairs. HHI is responsible for the data collection, and independent analysis, and reporting of the results, in collaboration with partners at the Université Libre des Pays des Grands Lacs, Université Catholique de Bukavu, and Univer-sité de Bunia.

Findings covered in the report: 

  • Customary justice continues to prevail - Few have heard of the « Etats Généraux de la Justice”
  • Popular support to improve safety by strengthening the FARDC - Support divided for ongoing operations
  • Decline in the quality of relations between individuals within the same group and between ethnic groups

You can download the report as a PDF in English and in French. Territory-specific profiles with all recent polls are available here. All survey data can be explored in an interactive map combining all polls and indicators.
