Survey on political culture in Macedonia
In the period May–November 2011 the research unit of the Institute for Democracy “Societas Civilis” Skopje (IDSCS), with the support of Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, office in Skopje, implemented a project: a nationwide Survey on Political Culture in the Republic of Macedonia. The Survey consisted of three parts:
• A nationwide opinion poll (a quantitative instrument) involving a stratified, representative sample of the population in the country (1,100 interviewees). The goal of the opinion poll was to gather statistically relevant data on the main parameters and benchmarks of political culture in the country among the general population.
• Focus groups with citizens in order to further examine the data gathered by the opinion poll from a qualitative viewpoint and clarify potential statistical frequencies, as well as specific phenomena in the field.
• Individual interviews and one focus group with experts (the quantitative part)in the field of political culture (politicians, analysts, journalists and professors). The role of the experts was to comment on the results of the opinion poll in order to determine the phenomenology behind the statistical indicators and gain quantitative ground for analysis.
