*As recession eases out thinly
The fall in oil prices is the main cause of the negative growth rate recorded in the Nigerian economy for the fifth consecutive quarter.
The economy has jerked out of recession. However It appears to be crawling towards growth as even though the economy’s GDP growth at less than 0.6%, it represents an improvement compared to previous quarters.
Global performance-reputation management consulting agency, Reputation Poll International has just concluded a survey to ascertain if Nigerians think whether the country is heading in the right direction?
30% of Likely Nigerian Voters think the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Reputation poll national telephone and online survey. The national telephone survey of several Likely Voters was conducted by Reputation poll from 18th -28th August, 2017.
Methodology: Reputation Poll’ survey questions are based on calls placed to randomly-selected phone numbers through a process that ensures appropriate geographic representation. Typically, calls are placed from 10 am to 9 pm local time during the week. Saturday calls are made from 11 am to 6 pm local time and Sunday calls from 1 pm to 9 pm local time.
To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Reputation poll uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel.
After the surveys are completed, the raw data is processed through a weighting programme to ensure that the sample reflects the overall population in terms of age, race, gender, political party, and other factors. The processing step is required because different segments of the population answer the phone in different ways.
