I do a lot of analysis of public opinion data from the South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia) courtesy of the Caucasus Barometer.
While most of the time I look at technology adoption and use, fairly often I have a moment where I wonder “What do Armenians/Azerbaijanis/Georgians think about X” and I’ll use the Caucasus Barometer to answer my question. Or I’ll read something in the media about people in the region (usually presupposing what “the people” think or believe) and I know that the data in the Caucasus Barometer could tell us what “the people” are thinking or believing, so I’ll do an analysis based on that.
Another way that I use the Caucasus Barometer is to find alternative ways of measuring economic wellbeing in the region. Income is only part of the story.
Since the spirit of the Caucasus Barometer is to share, I thought that I’d post some of my findings from time to time. Please feel free to ask questions about what I did or what I found. I love talking statistics and research with anyone!
Here’s a sample… there are so many more.
