Sampling Procedure: 
In April-June 2019, 649 stakeholders of the WBG in Nepal were invited to provide their opinions on the WBG’s work in the country by participating in a Country Opinion Survey. Participants were drawn from the Office of the President, Prime Minister; office of a minister; office of a parliamentarian; ministries/ministerial departments/implementation agencies; Project Management Units (PMUs) overseeing implementation of WBG projects; consultants/ contractors working on WBG-supported projects/programs; local governments; bilateral and multilateral agencies; private sector organizations; the financial sector/private banks; private foundations; NGOs and community-based organizations; the media; independent government institutions; trade unions; youth groups; academia/research institutes/think tanks; the judiciary branch; and other organizations.
Response Rates: 
65%
Weighting: 
The results in this year’s Country Survey were compared to those in the Country Survey conducted in FY’16 (response rate was 67%, N=324). Data were weighted to reach the same stakeholder composition in two years, which allows for year comparisons. Stakeholder groups which were not present in both fiscal years were not included in the comparison. Respondents who belonged to the “other” stakeholder category were not included either. As a result, mean ratings, percentages of respondents, and the total number of respondents in both years are slightly different from those of the original data reported in the FY’16 COS report and the non-weighted data presented in appendices A, B, C, D and F. For the weighted stakeholder breakdown and year comparison results, please refer to Appendix E (page 79).
Questionnaires: 
The questionnaire used to collect the survey data consisted of the following 8 sections: A. General Issues Facing Nepal B. Overall Attitudes toward the World Bank Group C. World Bank Group's Effectiveness and Results D. The World Bank Group's Knowledge Work and Activities (i.e., analysis studies, research, data, reports, conferences) E. Working with the World Bank Group F. The Future Role of the World Bank Group in Nepal G. Communication and Information Sharing H. Background Information The questionnaire was prepared in English and Nepal.
