The People’s Survey is an independent annual survey that provides a unique insight into the opinions of Solomon Islanders on a wide range of issues, including business and employment, law and order, public accountability and access to services.
Surveys and focus group discussions are undertaken in communities across Solomon Islands by trained local surveyors.
The survey is used across RAMSI's partnership with the Solomon Islands Government to establish benchmarks and set targets and in a wide range of areas, including law and order, household economy and delivery of services.
It is used in RAMSI's reporting to the Pacific Islands Forum and provides a mechanism for measuring the views of Solomon Islanders on progress against the jointly-agreed Solomon Islands Government-RAMSI partnership objectives.
The survey also provides important statistics on areas that are not directly related to RAMSI's work, including health and education.
