General Social Survey[edit]

Seems promotional-ish. Creator says "the coolest thing on the web". This is not a reason fora dding something to Wikipedia.--ZayZayEM 03:38, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • STRONGEST POSSIBLE KEEP and EXPAND!!! Next to the census, the GSS is probably the most frequently used dataset in all modern American sociological research and writing. It is much more than just a survey; it is a comprehensive examination of American points of view, conducted at regular intervals and asking thousands of participants the questions about religion and politics that the census just doesn't. I will note also that it gets 66,300 Google hits. --BD2412 04:24, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep--GSS is very significant in much of American social science. I'm sure this deserves to be in, but I'm also sure I'm not the man to write it, unfortunately. Cleanup. Meelar (talk) 04:26, Mar 14, 2005 (UTC)
