The LAPOP Network

LAPOP is housed at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Vanderbilt is a research university that for over 60 years has been a leader in the study of Latin America and the Caribbean. At this host institution, a dedicated team of faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students works year-round on the design and analysis of public opinion surveys. The group also edits and publishes the bi-weekly Insights Series reports, each one of which examines a single facet of public opinion. LAPOP's network extends far beyond the Vanderbilt campus, to include partner institutions throughout the Americas and an international advisory board.

LAPOP functions as a consortium, working in partnership with numerous academic and non-governmental institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. It collaborates with these institutions, sharing ideas for survey content and working together to disseminate the results of the public opinion surveys to the citizens of participating countries. This dissemination of results takes the form of systematic country reports, comparative studies, panel presentations, and media interviews.
