This study evaluates the feasibility of a nonquota, street-intercept survey method that utilized random selection of interview sites.
The street-intercept survey was compared with a randomdigit-dial telephone survey conducted in the same catchment areas among African-American adults aged 18 or older.
The street-intercept survey's response rates was 80.2% ; residence rate, 85.3% ; interview completion rate, 97.9% ; interference rate, 4.0% ; and yield rate, 2.5 interviews per interviewer per hour.
The street-intercept method produced more representative distributions of age and sex than the random-digitdial survey.
The street-intercept method is a feasible alternative to traditional population survey methods and may provide better access to harder-to-reach segments of the urban population in a safe manner.
