Washington, DC – Today IRI released its provincial survey on democratic governance in Indonesia. The Nusa Tenggara Timur survey, which was conducted January 12 - February 14, 2012, provides views on the direction of the province, citizen satisfaction towards local government services, policies and institutions, perceptions of corruption and the level of citizen participation, including youth and women’s participation, within the province.
The Nusa Tenggara Timur provincial survey randomly selected a sample of 720 citizens from 61 rural and 11 urban locations in 21 districts within the province.
