IRI, 2013. Survey of South Sudan public opinion: April 24 - May 22, 2013 [Report] International Republican Institute. Accessed online.

Opinion surveys should often be treated with scepticism, due to scope for misunderstanding and hidden motives in the interviews. Nevertheless, this is interesting, particularly when compared with the earlier one of September 2011. There are too many individual points to summarize here, but it is very accessibly presented, so well worth flicking through. Headline is that about 2/3 of people say life is better than before Independence, but a narrow majority says South Sudan is going in the 'wrong direction' as opposed to a narrow majority for 'right direction' in September 2011.
