The Ibero-American Youth Organization (OIJ) launched on Monday (23) in Madrid, a pioneering study with young people 15-29 years of 20 Latin American countries.

The survey, which was supported by the United Nations Program for Development (UNDP), resulted in the creation of the Youth Expectations Index.

According to the new index, Portugal appears in last place with only 44.9% of young people are optimistic about the future.

The young people of Brazil are also among the least optimistic of the Ibero-American nations. At the top of the index, are Ecuador, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, where at least 70% of the respondents have good expectations.

The director of the UNDP for Latin America, Heraldo Muñoz, highlights that "juveniles measuring expectations is critical to the region, especially in a time in which they occur several street protests."

The study also shows that violence and insecurity are the main problems faced by the youth of all countries assessed. The use of drugs and alcohol was also among the most voted replies in Brazil.

According to UNDP, more than 150 MILLIONS OF Iberoamerican are young and half live in Brazil and Mexico. About 80% live in urban areas.

On average, people between 15 and 29 years from all regions are more confident about their own future than about their own countries.

Young Brazilians are showing more approval on controversial topics such as gay marriage, abortion and the legalization of marijuana.

The Latin Americans show generally favorable to regional integration: 60% approve free transit of people, a single currency and solidarity with small countries.

The exception in item integration throughout Latin America is among the youth of Brazil, who did not accept any of the three options.
