The survey series Portrait of Canadian Society (PCS) is a new Statistics Canada initiative. It is a probabilistic web panel that involves asking the same group of participants to complete four brief online surveys over a one-year period. For now, this is an experimental project which is part of a larger effort to modernize our data collection methods and activities. The goal is to collect important data on Canadian society more efficiently, more rapidly and at a lower cost compared to traditional survey methods. We will be able to test this collection method and refine it over time. Each survey in the series is administered to a sub-sample of General Social Survey - Social Identity (GSS-SI) respondents who agreed to participate in additional surveys when completing the GSS-SI. Wave 1 - "Life During the Pandemic" explore Canadians’ perceptions of various facets of life including home and work life, leisure and well-being. Wave 2 was titled "Experiences During the Pandemic", and Wave 3, "Impacts of Rising Prices".
