2016 Testing of a New Survey Module on Perceptions of Land Tenure Security in Nine Countries
This new report in collaboration with Gallup presents results from the initial phase of survey testing in 2016. The study focuses on respondents' perceptions of the likelihood they could lose the right to live in their home and their possession (or lack thereof) of property documents that could help protect those rights. Results reveal a range of perceptions of tenure security across countries, and a mix of results about the relationship of documentation and perceptions of security.
Building a secure future: perceptions of property rights in India
The idea behind this initial survey is simple: to find out if people in India are worried about their existing property rights or lack of them - whether women or men, owners or tenants, in cities or in villages.
The survey results reveal that insecurity of property rights is widespread in India. At the same time, the results offer cause for optimism about the potential to solve the problem.
We plan to do similar research in other countries, building up to a global survey that will reveal similarities and differences between societies when it comes to people’s perceptions of property rights.
