Appropriate use and interpretation of the General Social Survey (GSS) results relies upon knowledge of what information was collected, how the information was collected and how the information was used to produce final estimates. This User Guide covers these topics in several chapters: Survey content; Survey methodology; Data processing; Data quality; and Data dissemination. The final chapter presents technical information to assist you in using the basic and expanded Confidentialised Unit Record Files (CURFs).

In addition, the following are available on the ABS web site a comprehensive list of the data items available from the survey; the 2010 GSS questionnaire; the 2010 GSS prompt cards used to collect the data; and the data items are available on the basic and expanded CURFs.
