Summary
The Kenya Democratization Survey Project was designed to measure societal support for various constitutional reform proposals, support for the government under President Mwai Kibaki, and trust in the government more generally. The project attempts to measure the attitudes of Kenyan citizens on the democratization process during 2005-2006 period and assess the interplay between ethnicity, attitudes on constitutional reform, the economy, and foreign influence in Kenya. The survey consisted of three parts, Part I: Demographic Information, Part II: Political Perceptions, and Part III: Economic Perceptions and Land Reform. Part I provides variables including gender, marital status, number of wives if married, whether they live in an urban or rural area, native language, ethnicity, religion, highest level of education, and occupation. Part II includes questions pertaining to respondents interest in public affairs, satisfaction with Kenya's democracy, party identification, view of the current constitution's reflection of the values of the Kenyan people, how often the President ignores the constitution, trust in government institutions, perception of public officials' involvement in corruption, the level of respondent approval regarding the government's performance, respondent's view on the government's power, their opinion on changing or keeping the current constitution and on political reform, and the degree of their satisfaction with the current government's constitutional reform process. Part III contains questions concerning the respondent's rating of economic conditions (present and past), their rating of living conditions (present, past, and future), their level of occurrence having gone without basic necessities (such as food, water, medicines or medical treatment, fuel, and cash income), their view on land ownership by foreigners and women, and land seizure and arbitration by the government, their opinion of women holding political office, their stance on the local court's authority to protect local religious practices, their opinion on local religious courts ruling on issues such as marriage and divorce, and whether respondents or family members are HIV positive. In addition, respondents were asked whether they read the newly proposed constitution, and if and how they voted in the November 21, 2005 referendum
