Sampled Universe
The population comprises all German-speaking persons living in a private household with at least one landline or mobile phone in the Federal Republic of Germany, who are eligible to vote in the federal election of 2017.
Multistage random sampling with a dual selection frame based on the ADM-design (Gabler-Haeder-model for telephone samples). The pre-election wave is a Rolling Cross-Section (RCS) survey aiming to realize 120 interviews per day. 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 population. Furthermore, the sample is regionally stratified. For landline users the selection of the target person in each household was selected via the last-birthday-method; for mobile phone users the person who answered the call was interviewed.
Collection Mode
  • Computer assisted telephone interview (CATI) with an average interview length of 31 minutes in the pre-election wave and 23 minutes in the post-election wave.
