The aim of this paper is to present, in a comparative view, the results of the Survey: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) which was carried out by the Department of Economics (FCS-UDELAR) in 2006 to respondents older than 17 years and to private companies in the industry, commerce and services during the second quarter of 2007. The main purposes of both surveys were to know the level of information and awareness regarding the issue of CSR, as well as images, attitudes and views of respondents when they answered and the actions taken by companies regarding CSR. Comparing both points of view (public opinion and companies), we find that there is a certain balance between those actions and the public opinion valuation about the most important areas.
