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. Its 2002 survey was conducted in 18 Latin America countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. A total of 20,222 interviews were carried out in the 18 countries using mostly urban samples of about 1,200 respondents in each. Public opinions on social, economic, political and regional integration issues were gathered in this survey. Topics include: democracy and authoritarian rule, satisfaction with democracy, approval of president's government, attitudes towards politics, trust, the economy, social policies and attitudes toward women.
