In the statistical process, one item was eliminated, so the questionnaire is composed by 11 items with item-test correlations higher than 0.427. The test has a bifactorial structure: Governability and Politic participation, which explain the 41.714% of the variance as total. The test counts with adequate reliability values for each factor (α= 0.745 and α= 0.730, respectively).
