Korean General Social Survey, 2010

The Korean General Social Survey (KGSS) is the South Korean version of the General Social Survey (GSS), closely replicating the original GSS of the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. Each round of the KGSS typically includes the topical module surveys of the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), and/or the East Asian Social Survey (EASS), an international survey network of four GSS-type surveys from countries in East Asia (including China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea). Respondents were asked about their trust of people and institutions, government performance, health behaviors, chronic conditions, obstacles to obtaining health care, and physical pain. Additional questions were asked regarding family support, local issues, attitudes toward aging, addictive behaviors, environmental issues, and international migration. Demographic information includes age, sex, education level, household income, employment status, religious preference, political party affiliation, and political philosophy.

This dataset is available through the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database which provides search and browsing access to abstracts and data sets in the world's largest archive of computerized social science data.
