Introducing the Cornell National Social Survey (CNSS)
William C. Block, Darren Hearn, Jeremy Williams, and Janet Heslop, Cornell University.
The Cornell National Social Survey (CNSS) is a survey initiated by the Office of the Vice Provost for Social Sciences and is a collaborative effort of the Survey Research Institute (SRI; responsible for conducting the survey) and the Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER; responsible for creating a public use version of the data and for its long term availability). The data, on such subjects as income and spending, immigration, security, personal health, political ideology, religion, social involvement, and technology, are drawn from a national random sample of 1,000 adults in the continental United States.
Our poster will introduce the CNSS, highlighting the respective contributions of SRI and CISER to what promises to be an increasingly valuable social survey of the United States population. Public Use Files for the 2008 and 2009 CNSS are now available, as is an integrated dissemination system containing harmonized data from both years of the survey. Plans for the 2010 CNSS will also be presented. View Poster
