The World Bank Group Country Opinion Survey Program (COS)
The World Bank Group Country Opinion Survey Program (COS) is an ongoing effort to systematically gauge and track the perceptions and views of the World Bank Group’s clients and partners across the globe, over time. The survey data provide the institution with more in-depth understanding of the views of stakeholders on issues related to the World Bank's work on the ground (how it operates, its relationships, and its knowledge) and other development related issues. The program is overseen by the department of External and Corporate Relations’ Public Opinion Research Group (PORG). This collection hosts open, accessible survey data from 29 countries collected in FY12 (July 2011 - June 2012) and 41 countries in FY13 (July 2012 - June 2013). In FY14 (July 2013 – June 2014), PORG will conduct surveys in another 43 countries. All data will be regularly updated and more countries will be added as data become available.
