An evaluation was made of the use of telephone survey methods to collect illicit drug use data.
Using data from a national survey that collects data by personal interviews, marijuana and cocaine use prevalence rates among households with telephones and those without were compared in order to assess coverage errors in telephone surveys.
Drug use rates were substantially higher among households without telephones, with 24.9 percent of those living in households without telephones reporting use of marijuana in the past year, compared with only 9.4 percent of persons living in households with telephones.
