The two primary objectives of the General Social Survey (GSS) are: to gather data on social trends in order to monitor changes in the living conditions and well being of Canadians over time; and to provide information on specific social policy issues of current or emerging interest.
The purpose of the survey was to better understand how Canadians support individuals and communities on their own or through their involvement with charitable and nonprofit organizations. Survey respondents were asked how they gave money and other resources to organizations; volunteered time to help others and to enhance their communities; and participated in practices which help give substance to active citizenship.
