The Insights Series provides short, pithy analysis of key, policy relevant data gathered by the AmericasBarometer. The studies are written mainly by LAPOP scholars and students. The series includes four types of reports:

 Insights  - In-depth analyses reports at the regional level that look at the individual level predictors, both sociodemographic and political, of key survey questions from the AmericasBarometer.

 Topical Briefs  - Short reports that give survey data insights from the AmericasBarometer related to contemporary sociopolitical events at the regional and country levels.

 Methodological Notes  - Reports that provide a look “under the hood” of the survey methodologies implemented in the AmericasBarometer project.

 Spotlights  (Now available!) - Quick snapshots of survey items from the AmericasBarometer across Latin America and Caribbean countries and across time. 

These reports are used by journalists, policy makers and scholars world-wide. Subscription is free and available by emailing your name to
