The 1972-2008 GSS cumulative data file for the National Opinion Research Center’s General Social Surveys (GSS) is now available from the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research via RoperExpress immediate download.
The newly released data file contains individual response coding for 53,043 respondents and 5,364 variables. The questionnaire contains a standard core of demographic and attitudinal variables, plus certain topics of special interest selected for rotation (called “topical modules”). Items that appeared on national surveys between 1973 and 1975 are replicated. The exact wording of these questions is retained to facilitate time trend studies as well as replications of earlier findings.
