General Social Surveys, 1972-1994 : [Cumulative File] by James A Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/06492.xml

General Social Surveys, 1972-2004 [Cumulative File] by James A Davis( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General Social Surveys (GSS) were designed as part of a data diffusion project in 1972. The GSS replicated questionnaire items and wording in order to facilitate time-trend studies. This data collection includes a cumulative file that merges all data collected as part of the General Social Surveys from 1972 to 2004. The 2004 survey was composed of permanent questions that appeared on each previous survey, rotating questions that appeared on two out of every three surveys (e.g. 1973, 1974, 1976), and a small number of occasional questions that occurred in a single survey. The GSS included 12 topical modules: computer and Internet use, negative life events, religious transformations, daily religious experiences, an experiment on measuring immigration status, altruism, an experiment on measuring alcohol consumption, attitudes towards guns, social networks and group memberships, sexual behavior and genetic testing and the role of heredity, stress and violence in the workplace. The International Social Survey Program (ISSP) modules included in the 2004 survey were: national identity and globalization, and citizenship. The national identity and globalization module was based upon the 1995 ISSP national identity module. The citizenship module was new for the 2004 data. It included questions regarding civic and political participation, social welfare policies, efficacy, misanthropy, international organizations, political parties, political corruption, and the working of democracy. Additional questions sought the respondent's opinion on topics such as the environment, foreign relations, society, the economy, leisure activities, familial relations, health care, and personal philosophy. The GSS also contained demographic information describing the respondents ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR04295
