NSF General Social Survey Competition – Due 08/15/24

Opportunity Title:

General Social Survey Competition



National Science Foundation (NSF)


Opportunity Number:




The General Social Survey (GSS) is a nationally representative interview survey of the United States adult population that collects data on a wide range of topics: behavioral items such as group membership and participation; personal psychological evaluations including measures of well-being, misanthropy and life satisfaction; attitudinal questions on such public issues as crime and punishment, race relations, gender roles and spending priorities; and demographic characteristics of respondents and their parents.

  • Two waves, 2026 and 2028, of data collection for the GSS sample, including the United States ISSP surveys.

  • Survey instrument and module development and experimentation for both the GSS and ISSP surveys based on scientific expertise in relevant social sciences.

  • Survey design, innovations and continual enhancement (based on assessment and analysis) of the cross-sectional survey and possible future panel designs.

  • Post data collection editing, processing and generation of constructed variables, data files and codebooks.
