New GSS Data Explorer Key Trends Feature Dedicated to James A. Davis

James Davis Ph.D. (1929-2016) was founder, in 1972, of the General Social Survey. Professor Davis who was a long-time member of the University of Chicago faculty and Director of NORC from 1971 to 1975, was an enormously respected scholar of sociology. We dedicate the Key Trends feature of the GSS Data Explorer site to James Davis, knowing that he would approve of its capacity to deliver important information about many issues to the general public.
