Sampling procedure: NA

Action to minimize loos: In connection with the telephone interview part of the survey (see DDA-1343) the respondents were given a reminder if the postal questionnaire had not been returned; the interviewer might help the respondent by the completion. After the completion of the telephone interview written reminders were sent (towards the end of April) to the respondents who had participated in the telephone interview but who had no returned the postal questionnaire yet. Furthermore, an attempt was made in June at contacting the respondents who had received the written reminder but who had not reacted.
