Abstract

Four procedures for selecting telephone survey respondents within a household unit-Troldahl-Carter, male/female alternation, next-birthday, and no-selection methods-were compared in a small-sample survey. The data indicate that the next-birthday method is a relatively efficient procedure for selecting a sample that is representative of all household members.
