ODDC at ICTD2013: Research methods discussion - Survey methods

  1. 1. 1 INVESTIGATING THE IMPACT OF KENYA’S OPEN DATA INITIATIVE ON MARGINALISED COMMUNITIES: CASE STUDY OF URBAN SLUMS AND RURAL SETTLEMENTS ODDC OPEN SESSION: DEC 10, 2013, CAPETOWN
  2. 2. Research Methodology   2 This work uses triangulation of research methods. It is necessary this approach because there are many factors that influence people’s perceptions of and attitudes towards governance processes and service delivery. We consider it important to adopt a three-tier approach in collecting data: quantitative, semiqualitative and one-on-one interviews with respondents in order to strengthen the reliability and validity of the findings
  3. 3. Research Methodology 3  Given the complexities of social realities of people living in marginalized settlements, this approach assures reliable measurement of the intended research variables.  Key variables that influenced the sampling procedures used – purposive and stratified random sampling procedures include:  County population distribution: necessary in ensuring nationwide generalization is valid. Three counties, two urban slums (Nairobi, Mombasa and Isiolo county)  Age: to ensure that the findings represent the whole age spectrum, the government national censuses were used to determine the number of respondents per age set  Gender: a deliberate effort was made to maintain a gender balance.
  4. 4. What the method helps us to understand? 4  To investigate the impact of the Kenyan Government’s open data initiative and to see whether, and if so how, it is assisting marginalized communities and groups in accessing key social services and information regarding health and education;  Understand the way people use the information provided by the Open Data Initiative;  Examine ways in which the public wish for the open data initiative to improve, particularly in relation to governance and service delivery;
  5. 5. THE FOCUS OF THE STUDY 5 This project is focused specifically on datasets that potentially improve citizens’ knowledge of the governance processes and access to services.  Datasets that we tried to link on the impact include:  Access to health information and facilities,  Access to education information and facilities, We are investigating the usefulness of this information through the intermediaries individuals and communities use to access government data;  In this study we try to measure the demand for government information and estimate the motivation for people demanding for such information 
  6. 6. Some outputs  Open government data and service delivery to the marginalized urban and rural communities:  52.6% of the respondents agree that the open data portal information has helped the government improve service delivery and accountability.25.9% disagree to that statement as 21.4% remained neutral.  57.6% of the respondents agree that the open data portal promotes dialogue between government and the public while 22.5% disagree with the statement as 19.8% remained neutral.  However, 45.5% of the respondents agree that the availability of such information increases their trust in the government whereas 23.6% disagree as 30.9% rate it as neutral. 6
