A handbook is also provided that was used by interviewers. The data are prepared for SPSS analysis. The instrument and handbook are provided in English and French. Our sections regarding major changes and how they dealt with them was replicated by Statistics Canada in their 2008 General Social Survey (GSS22: Social Networks, Sections 3 and 4).
