2008 AARP Puerto Rico Survey: Health Care & Financial Security Issues Among 18+ Likely Voters

This and Related Reports

Puerto Ricans have among the highest voter participation in the world. Island residents are civic minded and engaged in the political life of their country. Yet, as the results from this survey reveal, many are concerned about political gridlock and would like to see all political parties work across partisan lines. This report details Puerto Ricans' concerns about health services, economic security, and other local issues as well as opinions about electing a Governor and Legislators in November 2008.

A telephone survey of 503 likely voters age 18 and older found that:

  • More than half of Puerto Rican respondents are likely to change candidate preference for Governor and Legislator between now and the election as they learn more about the issues.
  • The majority of survey respondents are concerned about political gridlock in Puerto Rico.
  • Half of respondents disagree that Puerto Rico is on the right path for providing health services for all citizens.
  • More than half disagree that Puerto Rico is on the right path for providing economic security for all citizens.
  • An overwhelming majority of respondents (95%) say it is important to them that all parties work across partisan lines.

A total of 503 random-digit dial telephone interviews were completed in April 2008 among self-identified registered, likely voters in Puerto Rico age 18 and older, yielding a response rate of 35 percent and a cooperation rate of 63 percent. The sampling error for this survey is ±4.4 percent. Data were not weighted. For more information, contact Susan L. Silberman at 202-434-6339. (21 pages)
