P A R T II Sampling and Estimation CHAPTER 2 Sampling and Weighting in Household Telephone Surveys William D. Kalsbeek and Robert P. Agans University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA This chapter updates an earlier review by Lepkowski (1988) and provides a backdrop for in-depth treatment of sampling-related topics in the other chapters of the volume. It begins by considering features and limitations of using telephone numbers to choose probability samples of telephone households in the United States.

On knowledge or attitude items in the interview). The principal argument for not sampling within household is that taking multiple individuals per household lowers the cost per respondent (leading to a larger sample size) once the set of participating households is identified. , socioeconomic indicators). 40 SAMPLING AND WEIGHTING IN HOUSEHOLD TELEPHONE SURVEYS Several approaches have been proposed for sampling within households. Many were devised for face-to-face surveys but are adaptable to telephone administration, especially when computer technology is used for data collection.

1991), and Sudman et al. (1996) suggest that respondents do not use the same strategies for self- and proxy reports, although these differences are more of degree than principle. Factors that help to explain the similarity in self- and proxy reporting strategies include (a) the degree of the respondent’s participation in the events, (b) the social distance between self- and proxy respondents, and (c) the social desirability of behavior being reported. Whether or not proxy reporting should be considered, 42 SAMPLING AND WEIGHTING IN HOUSEHOLD TELEPHONE SURVEYS researchers have struggled to find conclusive evidence of consistent differences in the quality of self- and proxy reporting (Moore, 1988).
