Sampled Universe
The population comprises all German-speaking persons, whose residence is in the Federal Republic of Germany and who are eligible to vote in the federal election 2013 as well as living in private households with a landline.
Multistage random sampling based on the ADM-design (Gabler-Haeder-model for telephone samples). The pre-election wave is a Rolling Cross-Section (RCS) survey with the aim to realize 100 interviews per day based on random sampling. These daily interviews were conducted in such a way that not only the entire sample, but also the interviews collected on each day constitute random samples from the universe of German citizens aged 18 and above. Besides, the sample is regional stratified. The target person in the household was determined by last-birthday-method.
