Abstract: The Latinobarometer is an annual public opinion survey produced and published by Latinobarómetro Corporation, a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Santiago, Chile. It was first launched in May-June of 1995 in eight countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. A total of 9,069 interviews were conducted. This represented 82% of Latin America’s urban population at that time. Public opinions on social, economic, political and regional integration issues were gathered in this survey. Topics in the 1995 questionnaire include: unemployment, inflation, poverty, corruption, family economic situation, health, housing, education, crime, distribution of wealth, economic policy priority, environmental protection, economic development, opportunities for improving quality of life, equal opportunities for women, support of democracy, political parties and their access to television, image of Europe, Japan and United States, protectionism in industrialized nations, image of other Latin America nations, and trade agreements in the region.
