Sampling Procedure: 
From June to August 2019, 613 stakeholders of the WBG in Sri Lanka 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; state-owned enterprises; independent government institutions; private foundations; NGOs and community based organizations; the media, private sector organizations; private financial sector organizations; faith-based groups; youth groups; academia/research institutes/think tanks; the judiciary branch; and other organizations.
Response Rates: 
31%
Weighting: 
The results in this year’s Country Survey were compared to those in the Country Survey conducted in FY’15 (response rate was 50%, N=302). 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’15 COS report and the non-weighted data presented in appendices A, B, C and E. For the weighted stakeholder breakdown and year comparison results, please refer to Appendix D (page 80) of the Sri Lanka Country Opinion Survey Report provided under the Documentation tab.
Questionnaires: 
The questionnaire is structured and is available in English, Sinhala and Tamil.
