18 Jan KITLV Opinion Survey in the Dutch Caribbean, irregularities on St. Maarten
Between September and November 2015, the KITLV executed a large-scale opinion survey on all six Caribbean islands of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. On each island, a random sample of addresses was drawn to be visited by a locally-recruited interviewer. KITLV researcher Dr. Wouter Veenendaal organized and supervised the survey, closely cooperating with local coordinators and interviewers on all islands. The first round of analyses of the survey has now been completed, and Wouter Veenendaal and KITLV’s director Professor Gert Oostindie had been scheduled to present preliminary results later this month on the three Windward Antilles. They still intend to present the results on Saba (21 January) and St. Eustatius (25 January), but have had to cancel the presentation on St. Maarten due to serious suspicions of irregularities.
