|Title:||General Social Survey, 1992 [United States]: Cumulative Supplement|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Davis, James A., Tom W. Smith|
|Abstract:||The 1992 supplement augments the 1972-1991 Cumulative File (Study 399) with an additional 166 variables (There was no regular GSS cross-section in 1992 and no 1972-1992 cumulative file produced). Approximately 93 structure variables were added to offer further information on age, gender, marital status, and family relationships. About 73 variables were also added from the 1991 International Social Survey Program module on the impact of religious background, behavior, and beliefs on social and political preferences. These variables include items on morality, religious traditionalism, existential beliefs, religious upbringing, and the separation of church and state. In addition, the principal investigators recoded all variables using 1970 and 1980 United States Census Classification of Occupations to the International Standard Classification of Occupation Codes-1968 (ISCO-68) to facilitate the comparison of the GSS with many crossnational studies. Other changes were made to variables related to the Socioeconomic Index (SEI) of Occupations, measures of poverty status, family and respondent income in constant dollars, and date of interview.|
