Random digit dialing : the potential effect on sample characteristics of the conversion of nonresidential telephone numbers.
This study examined the changes over time in the residential status of telephone numbers and the characteristics of households with telephone numbers that changed from nonresidential to residential.
The authors determined the status in 1987 of all phone numbers (n=9,107) that had been found to be nonresidential in six case-control studies conducted between 1979 and 1986 in Washington State.
A telephone interview to obtain information on household characteristics was completed for 1,333 of the 1,901 phone numbers that had become residential by 1987.
