The General Social Survey (GSS), conducted annually between 1972 and 1994 (except for 1979, 1981, and 1992) and biennially thereafter by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago, collects information from the general public on a wide variety of subjects, including attitudes toward social issues, religion, education, jobs and the economy, government and other institutions, politics, and policy issues. Many questions are asked either in every survey or at various intervals across time, allowing trends to be analyzed. The 1998 GSS is of particular interest to cultural policy researchers because it includes a battery of questions focused on culture and the arts. Among other things, this "Culture Module" includes questions on attendance at arts events, personal engagement in artistic activities, attitudes toward art and literature, and attitudes toward arts funding.
