Summary: Latinobarometro is an annual public opinion survey, conducted in 18 countries in Latin America, representing more than 400 million people.
Main Points: Annual since 1995, Latinobarometro is produced by Latinobarómetro Corporation, a non-profit Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) based in Santiago, Chile. Latinobarometro administers a common questionnaire to households in Latin America with questions on different areas. Each year the survey focuses on a principal theme, for example, political parties, poverty, immigration or social capital. At the same time, identical questions repeated at regular intervals also allow the interested researcher to create a time series on many different topics.
Among main topics are:
· Economy and International Trade
· Integration and Regional Trading Blocks
· Politics and Institutions
· Social Policies
· Civic Culture
· Social Capital and Social Fraud
· Current Issues
The annual survey involves around 19,000 interviews with the same survey instrument employed in all countries, allowing methodological and cross-national comparisons to be made on questions covering the opinions, attitudes and behaviour of the continent's inhabitants across a wide range of economic and social issues.
The dataset covers most of the Latin American countries.
