2002 NSAF In-Person Survey Methods

August 1, 2003

Abstract

The 2002 National Survey of America's Families (NSAF) had both a telephone and an in-person protocol. This report focuses on the in-person protocol. Like both the 1997 and the 1999 surveys, the in-person component of the 2002 NSAF was designed to augment the telephone survey with a sample of households without telephones. During data collection, 650 interviews were conducted by in-person interviewers using cellular telephones to connect the respondents to telephone interviewers located in one of Westat's Maryland Telephone Research Centers (TRCs).
