IRI published the results of an October 2011 survey in six of the provinces in Eastern Libya under National Transitional Council (NTC) control. The survey measured the opinions of 1,428 people and has a margin of error of +/- 2.6%. Among the key findings, the survey finds that 84% of the Libyans surveyed felt the country was headed in the right direction. 94% of those surveyed felt that the NTC was very likely or somewhat likely to address the issues of Libya. 72% felt confident that economic conditions will improve over the next year. The survey also measured opinion on key domestic political players, priorities for post-Gaddafi Libya, and attitudes about foreign affairs.
