Percepción medioambiental de los ciudadanos latinoamericanos
The main goal of this study is to assess public opinion views on environmental problems and how these attitudes are based on individual characteristics in the case of Latin America. The contribution of this work is to show that attitudes towards environment are not only determined by personal attributes but also by macroeconomic factors. Moreover, findings can be useful in the design of environmental policies. The data source comes from the 2008 Latinobarómetro survey and probit models are estimated. In line with previous researches, we find that higher income and/ or a higher educational level raise the probability of being involved in environmental causes.
