The Central Asia Barometer provides public opinion data from Central Asia, which can be downloaded and used at no cost. However, the data is only published through open access two years after the fieldwork for each new wave is finished.

Individuals interested in obtaining the most current data, can purchase it retrospectively or subscribe to future waves. If you are an institution with multiple research teams, consult us for the institutional purchase of data that can be used without the limits of researchers.

For any inquiries or further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
