THE Centre for Strategic and Policy Studies (CSPS) has announced that a National Financial Literacy Survey 2015 will be held from February 26 – March 11 at all four districts throughout the country.
According to a press release, the study is a joint project of Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD) and CSPS.
A total of 1,600 households have been randomly selected, and the survey will take 30 minutes to complete. All answers will be kept fully confidential, and personal details such as name or IC number will not be required.
A total of 80 fieldworkers that consist of local graduates from Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB), Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) and the United Kingdom have been engaged to conduct the household survey.
They will be allocated across the four districts and members of the public are highly encouraged to participate in the survey. CSPS will be providing the field workers with an intensive interviewing training session prior to the survey.
The purpose of this study is to find out about the level of understanding of Bruneians with regard to financial issues. Questions asked include matters on household budget, understanding of general financial products, financial management and financial inclusion.
Information collected from this survey will then be used by CSPS to formulate strategic policy recommendations. Any queries regarding this survey should be directed to CSPS at 2445821 during office hours.
