Sampled Universe
The population comprises all German citizens who were eligible to vote when the survey was conducted. Due to the fact that this was an online survey not everybody who was eligible to vote had a chance to get selected for this Online Tracking. Therefore the population comprises all persons with German citizenship resident in the Federal Republic of Germany and being part of the respective access panel (until T16: Respondi AG, T17-T32: LINK, T33-T38: forsa omninet), who had a minimum age of 18 years. Active Panel members had been recruited by phone, had filled out a basic questionnaire and had participated in at least one survey within the last twelve months.
Non-probability: Quota; Sampling Procedure Comment: Sampling was based on a primarily defined ratio schedule (sex, age, education). Care is taken to ensure that panel members are only allowed to participate once a year in an Online Tracking of the GLES.
