Sampling Procedures
The target population for this survey was adults age 18 or older, residing in the Tulsa, Oklahoma metropolitan area. The sample was drawn from the Greater Tulsa telephone directory; a systematic sample of pages and random sample of columns and phone numbers; in the event a commercial number was drawn, the number immediately below it was used; in the event of a refusal interviewers moved to the next available number on the page. A table was used to randomly select which adult in the household to interview (oldest, second oldest, etc.). Fifty percent of those contacted agreed to the interview, yielding an N of 300.
