Perceptions and Sources of Information in the Obo region, CAR
Population-based Survey in Obo for “Integrating Local Media and ICTs into Humanitarian Response in Central African Republic”
Between May 19th-27th, 2012, a team of four trained interviewers conducted interviews with 400 randomly selected adults representative of the adult population in Obo, the capital of Haut-Mbomou, one of the 14 prefectures of the Central African Republic (CAR), and its surroundings. The main objectives of this rapid assessment were to better understand the sources of information that affected populations rely on, their media consumption habits and interaction, and their perception of humanitarian organizations.
