Population:

Individuals born before 1 September 1989

Sampling procedure:

Probability: Simple random
Single stage (without clustering) probability sampling. Fully random sample of individuals (equal probability selection) born before 1 September 1989.




Sampling frame:




For selection of individuals: The sampling frame is the register of the population, which includes all individuals living in Sweden. The frame is extremely well suited for this kind of sampling due to the full coverage of the total population.


Updating: The register is updated continuously. Individuals that do not reside on the address stated in the register will be traced through the use of complementary registers. Individuals residing in the country illegally can, naturally, not be selected, but the proportion of such individuals is small in Sweden and is thus unlikely to cause any substantial bias. The sampling frame includes those living in institutions, since there is no way to filter them.
