Youth Integrity Survey facts and figures
What is the Youth Integrity Survey?
The Youth Integrity Survey is an initiative of the Transparency International Secretariat, based in Berlin. The aim of the survey is to find out what young people see as right or wrong, which acts they recognize as being corrupt, whether or not they understand the concept of integrity and where integrity is positioned in their value system. The survey involves 26 questions that will help collect the required information from the respondents. Survey results will compare findings (gathered from over 1,000 face to face interviews) according to education levels, living standards, ethnicity, geography, age, gender and occupation. A control group of more than 500 adults over the age of 30 will also be surveyed, to compare responses between youth and adults.
Fiji is one of four countries in the Asia Pacific region where the Youth Integrity Survey is being undertaken in 2012, with the other countries being Sri Lanka, Indonesia and South Korea. The survey will be rolled out across all four countries with the same questionnaire and research methodology in order to achieve cross country comparability.
