Asian Barometer Survey

Summary: The Asian Barometer Survey (ABS) is an applied research program on public opinion on political values, democracy, and governance around the region. ABS (in the past East Asia Barometer) shows the levels of popular support for democratic government and belief in its legitimacy across the region.

Main Points: The regional network of ABS encompasses research teams from 13 East Asian political systems (Japan, Mongolia, South Koreas, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia), and 5 South Asian countries (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nepal). Together, this regional survey network covers virtually all major political systems in the region, systems that have experienced different trajectories of regime evolution and are currently at different stages of political transition.

The mission and task of each national research team are to administer survey instruments to compile the required micro-level data under a common research framework and research methodology to ensure that the data is reliable and comparable on the issues of citizens' attitudes and values toward politics, power, reform, and democracy in Asia.

The Asian Barometer survey program has 3 main objectives:

1.To generate a region-wide base of scientifically reliable and comparable data

2.To strengthen intellectual and institutional capacity for research on democracy based on surveying ordinary citizens in all participating countries

3.To disseminate survey results to academics and policy audiences
