Collection Procedures
The NASIS for 2015 was conducted using a mail survey. Nebraska households with a known postal address were sampled. The adult (age 19 or older) in the household with the next birthday after July 1, 2015 was asked to complete the survey. Prior to 2009, the NASIS was administered as a telephone interview.
Sampling Procedures
"The sample for the 2014-2015 NASIS was purchased from Survey Sampling International, LLC (SSI). A total 3,500 cases were provided to BOSR by SSI on August 6, 2015. These addresses were drawn throughout Nebraska with equal probability of selection. Known vacant addresses were excluded from the sampling frame. PO Boxes were only included in the sampling frame if there were the only delivery point for an address." (Source: NASIS 2014-2015 Methodology Report - see link above)
