Public Sentiment on Women’s Issues in Armenia: Fresh Insights

In an effort to gauge public sentiment on important women’s issues, including political participation and domestic violence, a significant survey was conducted by the International Republican Institute’s (IRI) Center for Insights in Survey Research in collaboration with Breavis.

The survey was conducted between August 29 and September 09, 2020, employing phone interviews with respondents selected through Random Digit Dialing (RDD) probability sampling of mobile phone numbers. The sample, comprising 1,511 permanent residents of Armenia aged 18 and older, represents the population with access to a mobile phone, thereby excluding approximately 1.2% of adults. This valuable study offers pertinent insights to government officials, political parties, and Armenian citizens, enabling them to effectively address the public’s concerns regarding these issues.
