Den urvalsmetod som används är ett tvåstegs klusterurval, där man i första steget erhåller ett hushåll. I det andra steget väljs en hushållsmedlem inom varje hushåll. Som urvalsram används senaste utgåvan av telefonkatalogens förteckning över telefonnummer. De 28 katalogdelarna kan relativt väl inordnas i den offentliga statistikens 70 A-regioner. Via Folk- och Bostadsräknings-data erhålles data om antalet hushåll inom respektive A-region. Hushåll utan telefon innefattas ej i urvalet.
