East Asia Social Survey (EASS) Series

The East Asia Social Survey (EASS) is a biennial social survey project that serves as a cross-national network of four General Social Survey type surveys in East Asia -- the Chinese General Social Survey (CGSS), the Japanese General Social Survey (JGSS), the Korean General Social Survey (KGSS), and the Taiwan Social Change Survey (TSCS). Founded in 2003, the EASS involves the coordination of participating institutions, each representing the four East Asian societies, who collectively determine survey module topics and questionnaires. The participating institutions include the National Survey Research Center at Renmin University of China in Beijing, the JGSS Research Center at Osaka University of Commerce in Osaka, the Survey Research Center as Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, and the Institute of Sociology at Academia Sinica in Taipei. Each individual institution incorporates EASS topical modules into the preexisting framework of their respective General Social Survey designs. EASS focuses on questions and issues that are commonly relevant to East Asian societies, with the goal of creating comparative data on diverse aspects of social lives in East Asia. Each year and corresponding survey topical module has a specific focus within the general scope of the EASS; module topics cover family, culture, health, and social capital.
