Opinion Surveys

Several opinion surveys were conducted in Palau in 2002. The Office of Environmental Response and Coordination carried out a survey of natural resources as part of its commitments under the National Biodiversity Strategic Action Plan. The Palau Conservation Society was contracted to conduct this survey between July and November 2002. This survey covered resource use and sustainability in the past and present. An exploratory survey relating to the International Waters programme was conducted at the same time.

The Small Islands Voice opinion survey was conducted between January and April 2003. A questionnaire with ten simple questions was used . The 2000 census data was used as a starting point in the survey design. The highlights from the survey and the full survey report are available. The major issues of concern to the general public in Palau were economy and infrastructure, crime and drug use, the high number of foreign workers, and the erosion of traditional values and leadership.
