Seligson's pioneering efforts have left innumerable imprints on public opinion research. One of them is the AmericasBarometer series (2004 - present day). This archive leaves off where that project begins.

All archive datasets (in SPSS and Stata format) and their respective technical information and questionnaires are available for free download below. To find a study, either scroll down to or click on a country, find the year of the study, and then click on the link to the appropriate document.

Users should consult the technical report for each dataset for details on the study design. In addition, they should take note that, for some surveys, the country-study pages contain reports or publications in addition to the datasets.
