This article uses data on the composition of cabinets in the presidential systems of Latin America to show variation in patterns of cabinet stability across the region. First, it reviews the existing literature on different ways to measure political stability, in particular the stability of cabinets, the causes of cabinet instability, and the link between cabinet stability and policymaking. It then provides data on patterns of cabinet stability in Latin America and on its relationship with different aspects of policymaking in the region.
