Abstract James M. Lepkowski, Raffaella Castagnini, Richard Curtin, Esther Ullman and Jenefer Willem, University of Michigan Harry McGee and Ann Rafferty, Michigan Department of Community Health Larry Hembroff, Michigan State University Colm O’Muircheartaigh, NORC Declining response rates in telephone household surveys and increasing use of internet surveys have generated interest in mixed mode survey designs. Preliminary findings are presented from a national and a Michigan telephone survey of adults administered identical questions about fixed line telephone service access, cellular telephone access and use, and internet access and use. Fixed line telephone service has a low rate of service interruption in the last 12 months: only five percent of households report an interruption. One-half of the adults nationally, and a slightly higher proportion in Michigan, report cellular telephone ownership. A multiplicity estimation procedure, based on data collected through a multiplicity question sequence, estimates that 1.7% of U.S. adults currently have only mobile telephone service, an estimate lower than other reported rates. Findings are also presented on cellular telephone use, including the proportion of all personal telephone calls made using cellular telephones, how often the telephone is on, and the likelihood the household would discontinue fixed line service in the future. Two-thirds of the adults in both samples report access to the internet from home, and over 85 percent of those report internet use at least once per week. The overlap among fixed line service, cellular service, and internet access shows that approximately 40% of households have access to fixed line, cellular, and internet service, while only about one-quarter have fixed line service. The paper concludes with discussion of the implications of findings for mixed mode multiple frame survey design.
