Collection ProceduresIpsos sent initial mailings in a 9-by-12-inch envelope via Priority mail to the 14,240 sampled households. These packets included two $1 bills and a letter asking a member of the household to complete an online survey using the website and password provided. If two or more adults were in the household, the letter asked the adult with the next birthday to complete the survey. Sampled households were later sent a reminder postcard and then a reminder letter via First Class mail.
Ipsos sent nonresponding households with a deliverable address a 9-by-12-inch Priority mail envelope. The Priority envelope contained a letter, a $5 bill, a paper version of the survey and a postage-paid return envelope. The paper survey was one 11-by-17-inch page folded booklet-style.
The within-household selection instructions were identical to those used in the earlier online survey request. These households were later sent a reminder postcard.
Households in Hispanic strata received all materials in English and Spanish. All other households received materials in English only. Those who completed the survey online or returned the completed paper survey were sent a $10 post-incentive.
