GSS Cycle 31 and 32

I was wondering when the PUMF for the GSS Cycle 31 (Family) would be available? According to this product page - – the data was released on February 7, 2019.

For the GSS Cycle 32 (Caregiving and Care Receiving), the product page ( says the first release is scheduled for autumn 2019. Would this include the PUMF or would that be later? I have a researcher who is interested in using this survey for a research project and would like to give her an estimate for when the PUMF would be available.

We’ve received the following response from subject matter:

“For GSS Cycle 31 (Family), it is safe to say Winter 2020.
As for GSS Cycle 32 (Caregiving and Care Receiving), the release of the analytical file is planned for November 2019.  The PUMF for GSS 32 (Caregiving and Care Receiving) will not be ready till sometime in 2020; We don’t have a specific time frame at this time.

The researcher use the PUMF for the cycle 26 (2012 GSS on Caregiving and Care Receiving) in the interim, if they haven’t already.”
