Interviewing was conducted on weekend days and weekday nights, using a computer-generated random sample of telephone numbers. Within a household, adult respondents were randomly chosen for interview. Each interview took an average of 20 minutes to complete. The interviewing was conducted in English, Spanish or Vietnamese, as needed. The completion rate was 74 percent. The telephone interviewing was conducted by Interviewing Services of America in Van Nuys, CA.
The survey sample was compared with the U.S. Census and state figures by city for Orange County, and was found to represent the actual regional distribution of Orange County residents. The sample's demographic characteristics also were closely comparable to the census and other survey data, including previous Orange County Annual Surveys.
The sampling error for this survey is +/2% at the 95% confidence level. This means that 95 times out of 100, the results will be within two percentage points of what they would be if all adults in Orange County were interviewed. The sampling error for any subgroup would be larger. Sampling error is just one type of error to which surveys are subject. Results may also be affected by question wording, ordering, and survey timing.
