Washington, DC – Today IRI released its survey of democratic governance in Mongolia.  The poll provides views on the direction of the country, quality of life and voter satisfaction towards government services, as well as information on transparency, democratic governance and the role of citizen participation in the decision making process across the nation.  This opinion survey was conducted with face-to-face interviews taking place from October 12-November 12, 2011, in 11 of the country’s 21 aimags (provinces) and the independent municipality of Ulaanbaatar. 

For the survey a random sample of 2,413 registered voters, aged 18 and older, was polled.  A total of 603 people were interviewed from all nine districts of the capital, Ulaanbaatar.  In addition, 1,810 people were interviewed from 11 provincial centers and 24 districts with oversampling taken in IRI’s target aimags of Dornogobi, Umnugobi, Darkhan-Uul and Orkhon to gain insight into those province’s specific needs and concerns for their government.  The margin of error for the entire study is +/-2.0 percent.

This survey was conducted on behalf of IRI by the Social Policy Development and Research Center of the National University of Mongolia, and was designed, coordinated and analyzed by American Viewpoint, Inc. in consultation with IRI.  The survey is part of IRI’s work in Mongolia to provide stakeholders with relevant information to improve democratic governance at the state and local level and provide issue-specific information to national-level leaders. 

A nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, IRI advances freedom and democracy worldwide by developing political parties, civic institutions, open elections, democratic governance and the rule of law.
