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. A specific topic is usually repeated every five years. The main objective of the GSS on Canadian's safety is to better understand how Canadians perceive crime and the justice system and their experiences of victimization.
