Students at the State University of Santiago, University of Concepcion, and University of Temuco: Chile, 1964 (ICPSR 7053)

Principal Investigator(s): MARPLAN, Santiago, Chile


This study, conducted in 1964 in the Chilean cities of Santiago, Concepcion, and Temuco, examined university students' attitudes toward national and international issues. Questions were asked about important problems that Chile had to face, major obstacles to more rapid development, collaboration with the United States to promote the economic development of Chile, the position of United States companies in Chile, and the influence of political, military, religious, and professional groups. The respondents' opinions of communism, capitalism, and socialism were also assessed through questions asking which system would be best for Chile and why. International affairs were also examined. The respondents were asked about the Cuban Revolution, the effectiveness of the Organization of American States, and their opinions of the Alliance for Progress, especially as it affected Chile. Exposure to the mass media, including foreign radio broadcasts, was explored as were the respondents' opinions of various foreign governments' publications. Demographic variables include age, gender, and father's level of education and occupation.
