Summary
The General Social Surveys (GSS) are designed as part of a program of social indicator research, replicating questionnaire items and wording in order to facilitate time-trend studies. This collection is a cumulative dataset that merges 20 years of the General Social Surveys. In 1994, two major innovations were introduced to the GSS. First, the traditional core set of questions was substantially reduced to allow for the creation of mini-modules (small- to medium-sized supplements). The mini-modules permit greater flexibility to incorporate innovations and to include important items proposed by the social science community. Second, a new biennial, split-sample design was instituted. The sample consisted of two parallel subsamples of approximately 1,500 cases each. The two subsamples contained identical cores. The A sample also contained a standard topical module, the mini-modules, and an ISSP (International Social Survey Program) module on women, work, and the family. The B sample had a second topical module, mini-modules, and an ISSP module on the environment. In effect, the A sample can be viewed as representing a traditional GSS for 1994 and the B sample as representing a traditional GSS for 1995. Rather than being fielded separately in two different years, they were fielded together. In subsequent even-numbered years, the same design described for 1994 will be repeated. The topical modules for 1994 focused on the themes of family mobility and multiculturalism.... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR06492
