POLIS - Observatorio de Políticas Públicas

About the POLIS - Observatorio de Políticas Públicas

The Observatorio de Políticas Públicas - POLIS is a research center dedicated to understanding and improving the quality of life in the Colombian Pacific region. We conduct applied research on urban, social and educational issues to provide data driven evidence to local goverments to make better informed decisions.

Since 2014, POLIS is implementing a population survey about Life Satisfaction in Cali (Colombia) called CaliBRANDO. The purpose of this survey is to measure Life Satisfaction within the population. The project also aims at understanding the relationship between Life Satisfaction and government performance. The survey is conducted annually collecting over 1.000 observations each year.

This survey allows i) permanent measurement of Life Satisfaction, ii) identify aspects of the city that matter (and do not matter) to the population, iii) understand in a more integrated manner the basic needs of the population, iv) identify the relationship between Life Satisfaction and goverment performance.
