ORANJESTAD — During the period of November 12 through November 26, 2018, the Centrale Bank van Aruba (CBA) will conduct a “Corruption Survey” in our community to assess the perceived level of corruption in Aruba through an in-depth analysis of the information collected. Several international organizations, such as Transparency International, frequently execute surveys on the level of corruption in several countries. As Aruba is not part of these international surveys, and important data on corruption is not available, the CBA has decided to conduct a “Corruption Survey”, using the same methodology and questions applied by Transparency International and also some questions related to Aruba’s own situation.
With this survey, the CBA aims to acquire valuable information on the experience and perception of Aruban residents with regard to corruption and gain insight on possible remedial actions and/or effective measures to counteract this phenomenon. This survey includes, among others, questions about the level of corruption, the experience with corruption when using services particularly in the public sector, the experience when reporting corruption, and the need for additional anti-corruption measures.
To assist the CBA in gathering this important information, a group of interviewers will visit selected households and conduct the interviews on behalf of the CBA. These interviewers will be wearing an I.D. badge with CBA logo. They have the obligation to keep all the information they receive during the survey strictly confidential.
The CBA is aware that a large part of this information is sensitive and, therefore, stresses that this survey is strictly anonymous and guarantees that all information received will be treated with the utmost confidence and will be only used on an aggregated basis for statistical and analytical purposes. The CBA hopes that all persons approached by these interviewers to participate in this survey will give their maximum cooperation. If you have any question about this survey, please contact Mrs. Edwina Matos-Pereira, Manager Strategy & Planning of the CBA and also the project leader of this survey, at tel. 5252100 or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
