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.

Key Points:

  • 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
    • Financial shortcomings for teams noted in three countries
    • 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
    • According to the Swiss Press Emblem Campaign as of October 2021
    • Latin America accounts for 8.4 percent of work population, 30% of Covid mortality and 52 percent of journalists worldwide who died from Covid-19 related illness.
