ABSTRACT
In studies concerning political participation it is possible to observe both conceptual and methodological differences related to its assessment. These differences affect the production of knowledge in the field. They make up a higher level of complexity when referring to studies done on the same population. In order to evaluate the political participation of the population of Córdoba, 7 studies were developed in a period of 14 years. Different methodological innovations were used in order to improve data quality and with the purpose of contributing to the discussion around the evaluation of this construct of high complexity and social relevance. The results reported are consistent with the trend in this field of studies suggesting the necessity of complexification in the assesment of this construct, encompassing its intensity, amplitude and orientation for knowing more precisely its multidimensionality.
