RDIT™ measures citizen thoughts in Morocco for the World Bank’s project on Open Data

The World Bank utilized RIWI’s nano-survey technology to engage Morocco citizens and determine their increasing demand for public information. RDIT polled a random sampling of Internet users in Morocco on the awareness of new legislation, demand for information and for participation, and specific preferences for online engagement. The functionality of RDIT provides the opportunity to collect sentiment data from a random sample of Internet users at a rapid rate in a selected country.
RIWI conducted the survey from March 21 to April 10, 2014 in both French and Arabic, and collected 15,020 partial responses and 3,942 complete responses to the 9 primary questions that were asked.

71%: Percentage of surveyed who want to have access to public sector information.
58%: Percentage of surveyed who want to participate in decision-making.
Key findings include:

  • 71% of respondents want to access information from the government
  • 58% of respondents want to participate in the government’s decision making
  • 71% of respondents indicated public information is relatively hard to access
  • The purpose of accessing public information shows a heavy lean towards knowledge and capacity building (37%) and service or market creation (16%)
