Joining Afrobarometer Surveys

Teaser image for publication.

As part of my PhD thesis, I have generated a dataset that includes all corresponding questions across four rounds of the Afrobarometer. After having submitted my PhD thesis, I have extended the dataset up to round 5. Beginning with data from round 4, for each question the corresponding question from earlier rounds was merged (and later extended to round 5). In some occasions, codings had to be changed. If this was the case, the process is described in the dataset. From all rounds of the Afrobarometer, the first round is characterized by the least comprehensive data collection. Some questions that are indispensable to the PhD hypotheses are not included. Due to the sparse data availability, round 1 of the Afrobarometer is excluded from the analysis.
