FinScope Tanzania 2013 is the third cycle of a survey measuring the demand for and access to financial services amongst adults throughout the mainland and Zanzibar. The information it contains provides people a vital component in the progress towards financial inclusion: it reveals what services people do and not use and why; what barriers prevent more use, and what is different region-to-region. It also gives insights into people's attitudes and behavior, into gender differences, urban and rural coverage, trends and choices - all with a perspective which now spans seven years.
The first FinScope Tanzania survey was undertaken in 2006, followed in 2009 by the second. Nationally representative of the entire adult population, 8,000 adults (over the age of 16 years) took part in the survey. Conducted in many African countries, FinScope can provide valuable comparisons with other nations throughout the continent.
A full report of the findings will be available later in 2014 - watch out for more news.
