Abstract (CPANDA): 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 2002 GSS is of particular interest to cultural policy researchers because it includes a battery of questions focused on culture and the arts. This "Culture Module" includes questions on musical preferences, attendance at arts events, and personal engagement in artistic activities. Another module, on the "Information Society," includes questions on the use of the Internet to obtain information about the arts.

Study Description -- Methodology

Data Collector: National Opinion Research Center, University of Chicago

Sampling Procedure: full probability

Mode of Data Collection: computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI)

Type of Research Instrument: structured

Characteristics of the Data Collection Situation: The average length of the interview was about 90 minutes.

Cleaning Operations: The data from the interviews were processed according to NORC procedures. Cleaning procedures -- utilizing a combination of the coding specifications and the interviewer instructions -- were used to check for inconsistent or illegitimate codes.

Response Rates: The response rate was 70 percent.

Other Forms of Data Appraisal (CPANDA): In-person interviews were conducted with a national, full probability sample of 2,765 English-speaking persons 18 years of age or over, living in non-institutional arrangements within the United States. Interviews were conducted during February, March, and April of 2002. The response rate was 70 percent. Beginning with the 1994 General Social Survey, two major innovations were introduced. First, the number of traditional core questions was substantially reduced to allow for the creation of mini-modules (i.e., supplemental question blocks devoted to a combination of topics). Second, a new biennial, split-sample design was implemented. The sample consists of two parallel sub-samples of approximately 1,500 cases each. The two sub-samples both contain the identical core questions. They differ in terms of the topical modules included. Thus, sample sizes for questions in specific topic modules will be about half the size of the total sample. Starting in 2002, the survey was conducted by computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI). In prior years, the survey was administered in a paper-and-pencil format.

Text: This code is the population to the nearest 1,000 of the smallest civil division listed by the U.S. Census (city, town, other incorporated area over 1,000 in population, township, division, etc.) which encompasses the segment. If a segment falls into more than one locality, the following rules apply in determining the locality for which the rounded population figure is coded. If the predominance of the listings for any segment are in one of the localities, the rounded population of that locality is coded. If the listings are distributed equally over localities in the segment, and the localities are all cities, towns, or villages, the rounded population of the larger city or town is coded. The same is true if the localities are all rural townships or divisions. If the listings are distributed equally over localities in the segment and the localities include a town or village and a rural township or division, the rounded population of the town or village is coded. The source of the data is the 1970 U.S. Census population figures published in the PC(1)-A series, Tables 6 and 10. For cases from the 1980 and 1990 frames analogous tables from the 1980 and 1990 Censuses were used. See Appendix N for changes across surveys.

  • EQWLTH
  •  Should govt reduce income differences

Survey Question:  Some people think that the government in Washington ought to reduce the income differences between the rich and the poor, perhaps by raising the taxes of wealthy families or by giving income assistance to the poor. Others think that the government should not concern itself with reducing this income difference between the rich and the poor. Here is a card with a scale from 1 to 7. Think of a score of 1 as meaning that the government ought to reduce the income differences between rich and poor, and a score of 7 meaning that the government should not concern itself with reducing income differences. What score between 1 and 7 comes closest to the way you feel?

Text: Vignette number given to respondent [for] (Qs. 851-871). REMARKS: Vignette wording: Imagine you've been experiencing headaches. You visit your doctor and talk to him about your symptoms. You also tell the doctor that you've been feeling a lot of stress lately. After doing a complete examination, the doctor decides that the headaches are probably due to stress. The doctor wants to work with you over the next month to reduce your stress. You want to have an MRI to make sure everything is OK. An MRI is a special and expensive type of x-ray that allows doctors to take detailed pictures of parts of the body such as the heart, spinal cord, or head. Remember that after your complete examination the doctor thinks you don't need the MRI. Then imagine that you have the following conversation with the doctor about the MRI and financial incentives. In this dialogue, the patient speaks first. VIGNETTE 1 -- CODE 1 PAT: I'd feel better if I had an MRI. I'm worried that you won't order it because it's too expensive. DOC: Our physician's group does have financial incentives to keep costs down by avoiding tests when they are not necessary. However, no single decision about an MRI affects my salary. In my opinion an MRI is not needed in your case. VIGNETTE 2 -- CODE 2 PAT: I'd feel better if I had an MRI. I'm worried that you won't order it because it's too expensive. DOC: It used to be that physicians were able to provide tests for patients just to set their minds at rest. Unfortunately, your health plan won't allow me to do it for that reason. Even though I'd like to order it for you, your plan is not going to pay for it. VIGNETTE 3 -- CODE 3 PAT: I'd feel better if I had an MRI. I'm worried that you won't order it because it's too expensive. DOC: I can understand that you're worried about whether everything is OK. It also sounds like you're worried that I'm not ordering the test because it's too expensive. These days with Managed Care lots of people share your worries about this. I want to set your mind at rest because I truly do not think that the test is needed at this point. VIGNETTE 4 -- CODE 4 PAT: I'd feel better if I had an MRI. I'm worried that you won't order it because it's too expensive. DOC: I understand that you'd like an MRI to make sure that everything is OK. But based on your symptoms, I really don't think you need one. I'd like to treat you for a month or so and then talk again about whether we need an MRI. Would that be acceptable to you? VIGNETTE 5 -- CODE 5 PAT: I'd feel better if I had an MRI. I'm worried that you won't order it because it's too expensive. DOC: I've had a lot of experience taking care of patients with problems like yours. The problem you're having is really quite common. You should follow the treatment I've outlined, and then I can reevaluate the situation again in a month. VIGNETTE 6 -- CODE 6 PAT: I'd feel better if I had an MRI. I'm worried that you won't order it because it's too expensive. DOC: I usually don't order an MRI under circumstances like yours. There's no outside pressure that has made any difference in how I treat patients with headaches. You may set your mind at rest that I'm doing this because this is how I practice medicine.
