NORC and the National Science Foundation have done the General Social Survey for more than 30 years to keep a historical record of the concerns, experiences, attitudes and practices of Americans. Your household was randomly selected from addresses across the nation for participation this year. The information collected is used by policy makers, scientific researchers, government officials and students to better understand Americans and better meet their changing needs. The questions well ask have to do with your opinions [AND KNOWLEDGE] on a variety of important topics like [2008 TOPICS]. Some topics may be sensitive for you, and you can decline to answer any question. Most participants find the survey to be interesting with a chance to talk about things that matter to them. Which questions are asked depends upon your answers to other questions. The interview takes from about 60 to 90 minutes for most people. (IF NEEDED: We can break up the interview into different sections if that will make it easier for you.) Your participation is voluntary. However, all information that you provide will be kept in strict confidence. It is important to us to protect your privacy. All participants answers are combined, and presented in the form of summary statistics, such as tables and graphs. Parts of this interview may be recorded for quality control purposes. This will not compromise the strict confidentiality of your responses.
