The Country Opinion Survey in Armenia assists the World Bank Group (WBG) in gaining a better understanding of how stakeholders in Armenia perceive the WBG. It provides the WBG with systematic feedback from national and local governments, multilateral/bilateral agencies, media, academia, the private sector, and civil society in Armenia on:
1) their views regarding the general environment in Armenia;
2) their overall attitudes toward the WBG in Armenia;
3) overall impressions of the WBG’s effectiveness and results, knowledge work and activities, and communication and information sharing in Armenia; and
4) their perceptions of the WBG’s future role in Armenia.

In December 2017, 201 stakeholders of the WBG in Armenia were invited to provide their opinions on the WBG’s work in the country by participating in a Country Opinion Survey (COS). Participants were drawn from the office of the President/Prime Minister, office of a Minister, office of a Parliamentarian, employees of ministries/ministerial departments/ implementation agencies, Project Management Units (PMUs) overseeing implementation of WBG projects or consultants/contractors working on WBG-supported projects/programs, local government officials or staff, bilateral/multilateral agencies, private sector organizations, the financial sector/private banks, NGOs/community-based organizations (CBOs), the media, independent government institutions, and academia/research institutes/think tanks.
The results of this year’s Country Survey were compared to those of the Country Surveys conducted in FY ’13 (response rate was 90%, N = 192) and FY ’16 (response rate was 70%, N = 141). The data were weighted to reach similar stakeholder compositions across the three survey years, allowing for more statistically reliable comparisons. Note, there were insufficient numbers of respondents from local government and the media to be included in these analyses. Also, stakeholders who identified themselves as “Other” in the stakeholder category options were not included in these comparisons. As a result, mean ratings, percentages of respondents, and the total number of respondents in both years are slightly different from those of the original data reported in the FY ’13 and FY ’16 COS reports and the non-weighted data presented in this report. For the weighted stakeholder breakdown and year comparison results, please refer to Appendix E (see page 80) in the Related Materials.
