The sample was drawn from the population register and included 8215 persons living in Sweden. Non-response consisted of set of sampling units without a telephone number, wrong number, outside the target group and out of town during the whole period, etc.,and in the result a net sample of 7139 people was achieved. Of these, interviews were conducted with 4499 people. This means that the survey has a response rate of 63 percent. The proportion of pronounced refusals was 14 percent, while the remaining nonresponse is made up of those not reached, short-term sick, etc.
