This particular survey was concerned with the attitudes and opinions of the citizens of Tanzania. Respondents in a face-to-face interview were asked to rate their president and the president's administration in overall performance, to state the most important issues facing their nation, and to evaluate the effectiveness of certain continental and international institutions. Opinions were gathered on the role of the government in improving the economy, the accountability and integrity of government officials, the proposed federation of East African states, the level of trust in other Tanzanians, whether corruption existed in local and national government, whether government officials were responsive to problems of the general population, and whether local government officials, the police, the courts, the overall criminal justice system , the National Electoral Commission, and the government broadcasting service could be trusted.
