Sampling Plan and Design

We will follow the same methodology we have adopted for the ISSP surveys.

Namely, face to face interviews with a sample representative of the whole population aged 18 and over. Due to the sensitive nature of the subject, we propose to adopt a upper age limit of 70 years, if this is acceptable by the program.

Our sample design will include three stages:

i) All five districts of Cyprus , each district divided into rural and urban proportionate to the population

ii) Urban and rural areas divided into clusters and a number of clusters randomly selected

iii) Random selection of households and one member of each selected household.

We propose to conduct 800 interviews, unless there is a higher minimum limit set by the program.


We assume that fieldwork will take around six weeks.

We would like to do the field work in September, ending early October 2004
