On December 1, 2012, the Latin American Opinion Project released the AmericasBarometer 2012 survey data. The fifth round of AmericasBarometer tackles the tremendous gaps in opportunities experienced by and resources available to the region’s citizens. The data, collected in the majority of countries with smart phones, includes 41,632 interviews collected from 26 countries in the Americas. The information, which in the past has been free of charge to other researchers, is now available online to the public for free at vanderbilt.edu/lapop/free-access.php.
In early 2013, the Insights series, which provides an analysis of key data gathered by the AmericasBarometer, will resume; anyone can sign up to receive these insights by sending an email to email@example.com. LAPOP recently received an important grant from USAID to continue its collaborative research with the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, as well as another substantial grant from USAID in support of the AmericasBarometer and special studies focused on crime and violence in the region.
