General Social Survey 2008 Cross-Section and Panel Studies

Since 1972, the National Opinion Research Center has conducted the General Social Surveys (GSS) in order to facilitate time-trend studies on the public’s attitude on a variety of social issues. The 2008 study featured special modules on science and technology, self-employment, terrorism preparation, global economics, sports and leisure, social inequality, sexual behaviors and religion. In addition, the 2008 study added for the first time a re-interview design in which participants in the 2006 study were re-surveyed to begin identifying longitudinal changes in attitude. This data file includes survey results from both panels and is available from the Association of Religion Data Archives.
