Sampling procedure

I undersökningen ingår 28 kommuner. Principen är att basurvalet uppgår till 150 individer per kommun. I de kommuner där det antas bli särskilt aktuellt med olika mer specialinriktade analyser utökas urvalet till 400 individer. Dessa kommuner är dels de som har kommundelar, dels de som specialstuderas i 1979 års undersökning och för vilka det därför finns särskilda möjligheter till uppföljning. I var och en av de fyra stadsdelarna i Göteborg drogs 250 individer.
