“We hope that the results of this survey will contribute to the public debate, especially at a time when Brazilians and women are preparing for the most important elections in recent decades”, says Katia Maia, executive director of Oxfam Brazil.
“May the candidates and candidates for mandates throughout Brazil hear the call of the population, which asks for a more just and less unequal country”, he added.
The survey was carried out between the 8th and 15th of March this year. 2,564 people were interviewed. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points, with a confidence level of 95%.
The study also showed the following data:
- 96% of Brazilians believe that it is the government’s obligation to guarantee resources for income transfer and social assistance programs, especially for those who need it most.
- 95% believe that the Brazil aidl must serve all people who are in poverty.
“These perceptions confirm the expression of a society that lives in a difficult social and economic moment, in which more than 33 million people are hungry”, says Jefferson Nascimento, coordinator of the Social and Economic Justice area at Oxfam Brazil and coordinator of the research .
