Presentation with Ivor Shapiro of our project «Reviewing the Sampling Definitions». We convened a panel that produced sampling definitions for WJS3, which were approved by the Central Council in November 2019. These definitions, contained in the explanatory “working paper”, have proved helpful for the sampling in more than 100 countries. We are now drafting a research report on this definitional work.
The section of WJS-Latam and Caribbean presented its report.
- Have data on 15 countries.
- Of those, 11 have initiated interviewing, with two almost complete.
- All expect to finish by 2023 deadline
- Difficulties reported –
- Political in two countries – elections season, repressive environment

- Covid-19 – Perú has decided to survey online due to very high mortality rate (6.5/100,000).
- Want to recognize the high rate of mortality of journalists in Latin America
