In this way, surveys can be legitimizing instruments for orienting political decisions. In the debate about how much influence these processes actually have on the policy process, opinions range from limited effects (Lazarsfeld) to a high level of impact (Noelle-Neumann), which find an insignificant impact of public opinion in influencing any aspect of the policy process. Even though some theorists are pessimistic about influences of public opinion on policy makers (as public opinion is seen to be too incoherent and volatile), other authors have thought of public opinion, expressed in surveys, as internally coherent, nonvolatile, and predictable and thus an important consideration in the decisions of policy makers.

3 Because of the low level of coverage, the number of observations of unemployment insurance in the household survey is too low to be robust. The fact that family allowances are above the imaginary 45-degree line reflects that the lowest percentiles of the distribution receive a more than equitable fraction of the program. On the other hand, the concentration curve for pensions is below the equity line, reflecting that the lowest percentiles of the distribution receive a transfer that is less than proportional, concentrating the people that receive the benefits at the middle and upper parts of the distribution (probably owing to the receipt of the benefit and the size of those households).

Unemployment insurance was launched at the national level in 1991, jointly with a series of structural reforms including privatization of state-run firms and public sector administrative reform. The system was designed as a contributory system with strict eligibility conditions that resulted in low rates of coverage. A vesting period of one year was required to receive benefits for four months, a period that increased benefits up to one year in the case of workers with three or more years of continued employment.
