Summary
This survey conducted January 3-27, 2001, is part of a series of studies designed to assess attitudes about democracy, markets, and civil society in African nations and to track the evolution of such attitudes over time. This particular survey was concerned with the attitudes and opinions of the residents of Mali. Respondents were asked to compare the effectiveness of the democratic government to the previous military government. Those queried were asked about their understanding of and associations with democracy, their overall interest and involvement in the government and its affairs, whether Mali was a good democracy, to what extent Mali was a democracy, and whether a democratic government was preferable to other systems of government. Opinions were gathered on the role of the government in improving the economy, how well the current government had fulfilled its promises, the government's handling of crime, health care, education, poverty, and housing, whether corruption existed in the current government, whether government officials were responsive to the needs and concerns of the general population, whether the current government was too complicated to be understood by the general population, and whether the government, political parties, the police, the military, and other social institutions could be trusted. Societal questions addressed how much trust could be placed in other people, whether it was wise to plan ahead, whether everyone should be responsible for themselves and their own success or failure, whether members of a family should share the same political beliefs, whether it is dangerous to allow too many differing views and opinions, whether people should be allowed to vote if they are not informed about the issues, and whether it was easy to obtain assistance in securing food, water, schooling, and medical services. Economic questions sought respondent views on whether large income disparities within the population were fair, whether encouraging people to start small businesses would create more jobs, whether allowing foreign investment in Mali was a good idea, and whether land should be owned by the individual or by the community. Background variables include age, sex, education, religious orientation, occupation, level of national pride, primary language, political ideology, political orientation, voter registration status, and household income
