General Social Survey 2008 Cross-Section and Panel Combined - Analysis

EVOLVED

Now, I would like to ask you a few short questions like those you might see on a television game show. For each statement that I read, please tell me if it is true or false. If you don't know or aren't sure, just tell me so, and we will skip to the next question. Remember true, false, or don't know. Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals.
