Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan fact tank that analyses and reports on groups, issues, attitudes and trends. Conducts public opinion polling, demographic research, content analysis and other data-driven social science research. Pew does not take policy positions.
The General Social Survey, or GSS, has surveyed Americans about demographics, behaviors and attitudes since 1972. Many of the core survey areas have remained the same, allowing comparisons over time. Use the Data Explorer tool to search the categories and subjects covered in the GSS.
