Citing the Data

We ask that all users of the data cite it as follows:

Source: The AmericasBarometer by the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP),

We also ask that all users include an acknowledgement line in their papers or books that would say:

"We thank the Latin American Public Opinion Project (LAPOP) and its major supporters (the United States Agency for International Development, the United Nations Development Program, the Inter-American Development Bank, and Vanderbilt University) for making the data available."

Please note: Replication requests should refer to the LAPOP websites where the data can be downloaded.  Authors should provide syntax/code that allows for replication of their analyses.  Authors are not permitted to transfer LAPOP-obtained data sets to third parties, even journals, as that would violate the terms of the "click license."
