Applicability


CIS gathers social data for research to identify trends in public opinion to applied research. It has developed an expertise founded in technical and social commitment with research in social and political challenges. As usual, this general survey explores specific opinions about some sensitive issues of social interest, so it is possible to connect these with the general opinions regularly surveyed, but no continuity in these specific aspects is available.
