Surveys of Public Opinion in the Americas

Speeches Shim

The Latin America Public Opinion Project (LAPOP) is a premier academic institution carrying out surveys of public opinion in the Americas, with over thirty years of experience. As a center for excellence in survey research, LAPOP uses "gold standard" approaches and innovative methods to carry out targeted national surveys; conduct impact evaluation studies; and produce reports on individual attitudes, evaluations, and experiences. The AmericasBarometer survey is the only scientifically rigorous comparative survey that covers 28 nations including all of North, Central, and South America, as well as a significant number of countries in the Caribbean.

 

The sixteen datasets in the Development Data Library are the results of surveys implemented in 2014 with resources provided by USAID.  Questionnaires are systematically pre-tested in-country; hand-held electronic systems (PDAs) are widely used to eliminate data collection and processing errors and to easily enable experimental treatments; sophisticated probability samples are designed and employed to ensure representative samples at the national and subnational levels; and, cutting-edge statistical methods are used in data analysis.  Survey participants are voting-age adults interviewed face to face in their households.
