GSS : General Social Survey
The GSS (General Social Survey), a data-collection program designed to both monitor social change within the United States and to compare the United States to other nations, is a major source of public opinion survey data for the United States. It is an almost annual, omnibus personal interview survey of U.S. households conducted by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC). The GSS contains a standard ‘core’ of demographic, behavioral, and attitudinal questions, plus topics of special interest. Many of the core questions have remained unchanged since 1972. Website includes data analysis system, GSS codebook, project reports, and a bibliography. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
