Title Using a Simulation Study to Examine Strategies for Combining Cell and Landline Survey Samples
Year 2010
Access date 30.06.2011

Cell phone use has grown quickly in the past decade. According to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) estimate, the proportion of adults residing in cell-only households is approaching 20%. Therefore, the representativeness of the traditional RDD landline survey is being questioned due to the increased popularity of cell phone use. Realizing this trend, more and more large state-based surveys have started to include a cell phone supplement sample in addition to an RDD landline sample. Such a design is referred as a dual-frame survey because samples are drawn independently from two overlapping sampling frames to cover the population of interest. Based on our experience with the 2008 Ohio Family Health Survey (OFHS), we summarize the issues and challenges involved in the design and analysis of dual-frame survey and review the popular estimation methods through a simulation study. The simulation will run several hundred sub-samples of OFHS data to examine the implications of weighting strategies.
