Civilitas Polls

What do we know about Armenia’s foreign policy options?

Civilitas Polls
The Civilitas Foundation attaches paramount significance to identifying public opinion on Armenia’s foreign integrational policy and encouraging broad public discussion. This need is especially highlighted in the current context of political decision-making, when the choice over Armenia’s foreign policy options is a one-man or one-party process lacking democratic support.

On October 6, 2014 the Civilitas Foundation organised a public discussion on Armenia’s foreign policy options. The event also featured presentation of the findings of a national telephone poll conducted earlier on the same topic. The telephone poll aimed to identify the knowledge of Armenia’s population of foreign integrational policies, including the possible benefits and harm from each option, their attitude and preference over these options as single or combined policy directions. It also identified the population’s mid-term projection of the situation in areas pertaining to domestic policy, such as education, health care, security, and economy (labor market).

Civilitas Polls
Within the framework of the project, in total 6 polling rounds with 3,630 successful interviews were completed.
The first 4 polling rounds were based on the panel provided by CRRC (Caucasus Research Resource Centers), which comprised around 600 respondents. The panel was collected through face-to-face survey across the country in February 2011 and was a fair and accurate representation of the country’s demographics.

The last 2 polling rounds were based on a new panel of around 1300 respondents. The panel was formed based on a multi-stage clustered stratified sample developed by the polling project team. The results of the surveys of this panel were projected on the entire population of Armenia, as the whole data was weighted both for individual and household dimensions and, therefore, the results were credibly generalized on the population level.

Telephone interviews were used with both groups of respondents and ensured 100% coverage of the population reaching landline only households, mobile only households and those with both a landline and a mobile phone.

All questions were vetted thru CRRC in Tbilisi, and its director, Dr. Hans Gutbrod. The nature of the questions was agreed upon in Yerevan. 

The interviews were conducted to produce representative samples of the population in terms of age, gender, social background and geographical distribution across the country. Below, is the brief report on the surveys.
