GSS -- TIme use


I see that there was a Cycle 29 pilot for which the data is not being released: http://www23.statcan.gc.ca/imdb/p2SV.pl?Function=getSurvey&SurvId=152781&InstaId=152570&SDDS=4503

Does "pilot" imply that there will be a full survey coming soon for which the data will be released — perhaps in 2015? Could this be confirmed, and could we get a tentative date of release? I don't see any mention of this at http://www.statcan.gc.ca/eng/dli/prod_date.


Here is the response from subject matter

Yes, Cycle 29 is in the pilot phase right now and will be in collection next year. Whenever we run a GSS cycle, we always do a pilot a year before. The release dates are not yet finalized at this point but I would say late 2016 as a rough estimate. Were still in collection of Cycle 28 right now.
