the kids are alright

The kids are alright, or at least that’s the theme of the poll printed in the June issue of Plan V. The results from the poll, done by La Fundacion Odiseo, give a peek into the inner workings of Argentine young folks– opinions, attitudes, and beliefs. You can see the full results here, but a couple of numbers caught our eye:

– 65% of young people would donate their organs

– Only 17% are practicing Catholics, compared to 56% who are non-practicing Catholics. A whopping 62% believe in miracles.

– 43% of those polled know someone their age who has had an abortion; 46% believe that abortion should be permited only in special cases.

– 60% live with their parents. 

– 76% don’t identify with the images and personalities that advertising uses to characterize young people today.

– 29% said that they have homosexual friends, 67% claimed that they didn’t. 78% think that in Argentina there is discrimination against people who are homosexual.

Do you think that these numbers accurately represent young Argentines?
