I’ve just heard about a new survey that Statcan is conducting called the Survey of Safety in Public and Private Spaces (Survey 5256). Data collection is underway now.
In looking at the questionnaires, there seems to be some overlap with the General Social Survey on Victimization (Survey 4504), though only partial. Will the GSS Victimization – last done in 2014 -- also be conducted on its regular 5-cycle which I would expect to be in 2019?
Subject matter has confirmed that the General Social Survey (GSS) on Victimization survey is planned to continue being conducted on its regular 5-cycle. The Survey of Safety in Public and Private Spaces (SSPPS) is expected to be a one-time survey.
