General Social Survey - Cycle 15: family history


From February to December 2001, cycle 15 of the General Social Survey (GSS) collected data about the family. Data were gathered from 24,310 persons aged 15 and older and living in a private household in one of 10 Canadian provinces. The cycle focused on information about the respondent's family: family origins; marital history; common-law unions; fertility intentions; biological, adopted and stepchildren; and departure from the parental home. The GSS also gathered data on the respondent's domestic situation at the time of the survey.
