1 Combining Landline Phone Samples and Mobile Phone Samples in Germany: a Dual Frame Approach First Outcomes of a DFG*-Project Siegfried Gabler, Sabine Häder * DFG = Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft = German Research Foundation

2 Gabler/Häder, Landline/cell phone, Q2008 Rome 10 July 2008 Overview The main problem: The cell phone only households Description of the DFG-Project First results: - sampling procedure - weighting

5 Gabler/Häder, Landline/cell phone, Q2008 Rome 10 July 2008 DFG-Project: Interviews via cell phones Cooperation TU Dresden and GESIS-ZUMA Two parallel surveys: one via landline, one via cell phone Aims of the project: - Investigation of mode effects - Response behaviour - Weighting model for the combination of both samples Respectively ca. 1,000 people interviewed Realization: Landline 1,009 Cell phones1,161 Survey period October 2007-April 2008

6 Gabler/Häder, Landline/cell phone, Q2008 Rome 10 July 2008 Sampling procedure for cell phone numbers by BIK ASCHPURWIS + BEHRENS GmbH All hypothetical numbers assigned: 279,000,000 numbers* Generated numbers on basis of used number blocks : 178,050,000 numbers Registered numbers 2,297,460 (January 2008) *) Provider O2 allocates eight-digit numbers in connection with the prefix even though only seven-digit numbers were ordered at RegTP.

9 Landline M F quantity of numbers in frame m F quantity of numbers in sample Selection: simple random sample Landline M F quantity of numbers in frame m F quantity of numbers in sample Selection: simple random sample Cell phone M C quantity of numbers in frame m C quantity of numbers in sample Selection: simple random sample i = N (N is number of target persons in population k i C Quantity of cell phone numbers allowing access to person i. k i F Quantity of landline numbers allowing access to the household to which person i belongs. Selection: Kish table/last birthday z i Size of household to which person i belongs. Gabler/Häder, Landline/cell phone, Q2008 Rome 10 July 2008

10 Weigthing model: basic assumption The probability of choosing two (not necessarily different) members of the same household via different modes is insignificant. (Could be a problem in small regional samples).

11 Inclusion Probability Horvitz-Thompson-Estimator Gabler/Häder, Landline/cell phone, Q2008 Rome 10 July 2008

12 Weighting model Problem: Most of the household members do not know the exact quantity of landline numbers allowing access to their household. Therefore the simplified assumption: Landline (analog): 1 number Landline (ISDN): 2.5 numbers ISDN = integrated services digital network 1 i.e. 2.5     F i k Gabler/Häder, Landline/cell phone, Q2008 Rome 10 July 2008
