Collection Procedures
The NASIS for 2013 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, 2013 was asked to complete the survey. Prior to 2009, the NASIS was administered as a telephone interview.
Sampling Procedures
"The sample for the 2012-2013 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." (Source: NASIS 2013-2014 Methodology Report - see link above)
