Sampled Universe
Adult household population of the City of Detroit. Smallest Geographic Unit: Detroit City Council District
The target population for this study was the adult household population of the City of Detroit. The sample had two components: The 714 respondents to the first wave of the DMACS survey: The initial sample in this case was a simple address-based sample. In 2016 a simple random sample of addresses was drawn from a list of all household addresses in the City. A total of 3100 addresses were selected from FIPS 26/22000, City of Detroit. The sample file contained information including the tract number, block and block group, and whether the address was a single or multiple family structure. The sample provider also matched each address to the likely name and phone number of a resident when such information was available. Approximately 90% of the sample lines came with a possible name match and 68% with a possible telephone number match. All individuals who responded to the Wave 1 survey were invited to participate in the Wave 3 survey.; A new stratified two-stage cluster sample of household addresses: For the first stage of sampling, U.S. block groups were selected with probability proportionate to estimated size within two strata. The first stratum included block groups where 70% or more of the population is Hispanic/Latino according to ACS estimates; eight block groups were selected within this stratum. The second stratum included all other block groups within the City of Detroit; 41 block groups were selected within this stratum. The second stage of sampling consisted of selecting household addresses from a list of all households in the block group. A total of 3,852 addresses were selected at this stage.;
