Latino National Political Survey (LNPS) now available for download on the IPRNet website
From the Institute for Puerto Rican Policy (IPR), 13 November 1997
The Latino National Political Survey (LNPS), the largest privately-funded household survey of U.S. Latino political attitudes and behavior ever conducted, is now available free for download on the Institute for Puerto Rican Policy's IPRNet Website:
The LNPS covers over 400 variables, including public policy preferences, electoral and organizational behavior, media usage, and much more. It is based on a sample of 1,546 Mexicans, 589 Puerto Ricans, 682 Cubans and 456 non-Latinos taken in 40 metropolitan areas throughout the continental United States.
The LNPS was developed by a research team political scientists consisting of Rudolfo O. de la Garza of the University of Texas at Austin, Angelo Falcon of the Institute for Puerto Rican Policy, F. Chris Garcia of the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque, and John A. Garcia of the University of Arizona at Tucson. It was funded by The Ford Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, the Spencer Foundation and the Tinker Foundation, with the support of the Inter-University Program for Latino Research.
The LNPS dataset was just made available for public access through the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) at the University of Michigan (ICPSR 6941, CD0016).
Contributions to the Institute for Puerto Rican Policy are
tax-deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code.
