More details are at their website:


They say:

"Cuba also restricts opinion surveys without government authorization
and supervision. For that reason, IRI utilized an original methodology
for its survey. From March 14-April 12, 2008 interviewers from other
Latin American countries discreetly engaged Cubans in public areas
with their questionnaires. A total of 587 Cuban adults were asked
questions ranging from perspectives on the economy to the performance
of the current Castro regime. The survey has a margin of error of +/-
four percent, and a 95 percent level of confidence. The survey was
conducted in all 14 Cuban provinces. "
