COVID-19 – Sri Lanka — LIRNEasia

LIRNEasia conducted a national survey representative of everyone above the age of 15 in Sri Lanka.

Completed in October 2021, the survey sheds light in particular on two main aspects. First, the level of digital connectivity in Sri Lanka. Second, how the level of digital connectivity impacted access to other services, such as education, food, work and government service delivery.

About the research: The research was conducted by LIRNEasia, and funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) through a grant given to three regional think tanks, LIRNEasia, Research ICT Africa and Instituto de Estudios Peruanos. The nationally representative sample for the survey conducted in Sri Lanka consisted of 2,500 households and individuals across the country covering 125 Grama Niladhari Divisions. The sampling methodology has been designed to ensure representation of the target group (population aged 15+) at a national level with a confidence level of 95-percent and a +/-2.8% margin of error. The data also allows for disaggregation by urban/rural divide, gender and socio-economic classification at the national level, as well as by within and outside the Western Province.
