The Afrobarometer is a comparative series of public attitude surveys that collects and disseminates data regarding Africans' views on democracy, governance, the economy, civil society, and related issues. This particular data collection was concerned with the attitudes and opinions of the citizens of Burundi, and also includes a number of "country-specific questions" designed specifically for the Burundi survey.

The data are collected from nationally representative samples in face-to-face interviews in the language of the respondent's choice. Standard topics for the Afrobarometer include attitudes toward and evaluations of democracy, governance, and economic conditions, political participation, and national identity. In addition, Round 6 surveys included special modules on taxation; tolerance; crime, conflict, and insecurity; political corruption; interregional relations; perceptions of China; use of technology; and social service delivery. Questions specific to Burundi addressed several topics, including opinions on the judiciary, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the National Commission on Land and Other Assets, and the pre-election context.

These surveys also collect a large set of socio-demographic indicators such as age, gender, education level, poverty level, language and ethnicity, religious affiliation, employment status and occupation, and housing. In addition, the interviewer's gender, race, and education level is provided. Afrobarometer Round 6 surveys were implemented in 36 countries.
