DIAZ - GONZALEZ, José Andrés; SOLANO, Sindy Mora  and  KIEWIT, Luis Diego Soto. Visions of the future in Costa Rica: a study based on the perceptions of the population. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.42, pp.177-194. ISSN 0797-5538.

This paper thinks about the conceptions the future of different social groups. The survey was performed by the Social Studies of Population Institute (idespo) of the National University of Costa Rica, in October 2013, to identify the general perceptions of the Costa Rican population about the expectations of the country. The paper concludes the existence of a significant relationship between socioeconomic status, age of the persons and their perception of the future. However, in general, people have a negative perception of the future and see a little chance that this will improve.

Keywords : Political culture; future; population; Costa Rica.
