The goal of the Arab Barometer was to survey individuals across fourteen countries in the Middle East and North Africa to assess their opinions on social, political, and economic issues. Data were collected on topics that included economics, religion, government, and social justice.

For wave 1 in Palestine, in-person interviews were conducted in May on 1,270 individuals ages 18 and over using a multistage stratified sample design.
