5.1. Survey setup
Every EU Member State collected the data for the
survey through a CATI system and all versions of
CATI were eective. Table 5 shows the dierent
CATI sy stems used by each Member State.
Initial samples were obtained through two
channels: mobile phone numbers and landline
phone numbers. At times, only one of these
means was used to get a representative national
sample, e.g. in Lat via, Greece, Spain and the
United Kingdom.
The information was collected in May and
June 2015 and meets the stratication criteria
described above. The collected data allow for
segmentation by the suggested age groups:
18-39 years old, 40-64 and 65. The population
criterion is also met (at least 25 % live in rural
areas, with a maximum uctuation of 10 %), and
at least 35 % of respondents were employed
(see Table 36 in Annex 3).
It should be noted that the aected vari-
ables were re-encoded to create Table 36
(see Annex 3) and determine compliance
with stratication criteria. More specically,
Q4: Where do you live? had four types of
response: 1. The open countryside or a vil-
lage; 2. A small town; 3. A medium to large
town; and 4. A city or cit y suburb. Responses
were dichotomised to calculate the percent-
age of respondents living in rural vs urban
areas: category 1 (rural area) is made up by
subjects living in the open countryside, a vil-
lage or small town, while category 2 (urban
area) comprises those li ving in a medium
to large town or a city or cit y suburb. Like-
wise, Q5: Could you please tell me what is
your current employment status? had six
types of answer: 1. Student; 2. Housewife/
Stay-at-home husband/partner; 3. Retired
or pensioner; 4. Self-employed; 5. Employee;
and 6. Unemployed. Again, responses were
dichotomised to calculate the percentage of
employed respondents in the sample: cate-
gory 1 (employed) includes self- employed
and employee, while category 2 (unem-
ployed) includes the remaining respondents
and thus includes more than simply unem-
ployed people.
