IRI Releases Survey of Cuban Public Opinion
While reports of reforms by the Cuban regime – including the purchase and sales of homes and limited liscensing for independent businesses – continue to generate widespread news coverage, IRI’s survey found that 85 percent of Cubans cannot cite any effect reforms have had in their personal lives.
The survey was conducted in 14 Cuban provinces and has a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percent, and a 95 percent level of confidence. This survey was the seventh of its kind conducted by IRI on the island since 2007.
