Data Notes

I was recently looking at some of the data collected in the GSS and came across their question on attitudes towards premarital sex. I was interested in how Americans’ feelings about this have change over time so I used the GSS Explorer website to download the data they have on the subject. Once I had the data, I used Tableau to create the visualization. You can change the visualization to view the categories I collapsed to see what percentage of people thought it was wrong or not wrong. You can also look at the detailed response categories they gather in the survey.
