Abstract: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 all data collected as part of the General Social Surveys from 1972 to the present. Among the new items added for the 2002 surveys are topical modules on prejudice, doctors and patients, quality of working life, employee compensation, altruism, adult transitions, and mental health. Also included are crossnational modules, conducted under the aegis of the International Social Survey Program (ISSP), on the role of government, social support and equality, family and gender, national identity, religion, the environment, and work.
