Abstract

The AsiaBarometer Survey Project conducts the largest comparative surveys in 29 countries and societies in Asia, covering East, Southeast, South, and Central Asia from 2003 to 2008. The AsiaBarometer focuses on daily lives of ordinary people. The AsiaBarometer adopts the bottom-up approach: it gauges primarily how ordinary people live their life with all their worries, anger, desires, and dreams; it focuses secondarily on their relationship to family, neighborhood, workplace, social and political institutions, and marketplace. The questionnaire is interviewee-friendly and culturally sensitive as possible but makes cross-level and cross-national examinations possible. The AsiaBarometer intends to build a common academic infrastructure widely available to empirical researchers by accumulating and disseminating social survey data.
