Insights Series

The Insights Series provides short, pithy analyses of policy-relevant data collected by LAPOP Lab. 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. Subscribe for free here!
