The answers to questions on a wide variety of social and political issues from more than 25,000 respondents are contained in the General Social Survey (GSS) data base. The authors, who have directed the GSS since its inception, have set out to enable social scientists to exploit this large data set more effectively. The book outlines such topics as the recurrent, replicated 'core' items suitable for trend analyses, the annual topical modules on subjects of current interest and the international modules produced in collaboration with the International Social Survey Programme.

Polls are at their best as indicators of public opinion when they allow comparison over extended periods of time. Yet all too often changes in question working and in questionnaire content make over-time comparisons impossible. This works aims to overcome this difficulty by bringing together a compendium of results using identically worded questions on a range of social, political and economic topics of importance to the American people. Chapter introductions summarize trends in the various areas surveyed and discuss problems of interpretation. The chapters on political behaviour and attitudes present findings on party identification, political tolerance, voting, civil liberties, international affairs and related issues. Chapters on work, the family and sexuality cover such topics as job prestige and satisfaction, the role of women, divorce, family size, sex education, abortion, premarital and extramarital sex, homosexuality and pornography. Other issues addressed include crime and violence, race, death and dying, life style and general attitudes toward life. Trend analysis based on general social surveys conducted regularly by the Nation Opinion Research Centre of the University of Chicago since 1972 is supplemented by data from 25 other sources extending back to the 1930s. The questions chosen are standardized and have been asked in interviews over a significant period. Survey results are displayed in a readable format that facilitates comparisons over time.

Survey Methodology is becoming a more structured field of research, deserving of more and more academic attention. The SAGE Handbook of Survey Methodology explores both the increasingly scientific endeavour of surveys and their growing complexity, as different data collection modes and information sources are combined. The handbook takes a global approach, with a team of international experts looking at local and national specificities, as well as problems of cross-national, comparative survey research. The chapters are organized into seven major sections, each of which represents a stage in the survey life-cycle: Surveys and Societies Planning a Survey Measurement Sampling Data Collection Preparing Data for Use Assessing and Improving Data Quality The SAGE Handbook of Survey Methodology is a landmark and essential tool for any scholar within the social sciences.
