The Global Attitudes Project, Spring 2010, 22 Nation Survey is a cross-national survey of attitudes on global issues. Topics include politics, social issues, globalization, life satisfaction, and religion. Respondents also were surveyed on their views of the role of the United States in the world and on their impressions of well-known leaders (Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin, etc.)

This survey was conducted both before and after the passage of a controversial Arizona state immigration law. These data allow opportunities to examine the extent to which opinions in Mexico changed after this law was passed.

Note on Weights and Filters
It is important to read this information before using the 2010 Pew Global Attitudes Survey dataset because full surveys in Mexico were conducted both before and after the passage of a controversial Arizona state immigration law.

The weight that must be used when looking to analyze the attitudes and opinions of the general populations is WEIGHT .

To analyze opinions before and after the passage of a controversial Arizona state immigration law, use variable ARIZONA. If ARIZONA = 0, then Interview did NOT include questions about the immigration law. If ARIZONA = 1, then Interview did include questions about the immigration law. The post-passage questions include Q119a and Q119ca-cc.
