Stockholm Health of the Population Study is a cross-sectional study carried out from 1984-85.
Postal questionnaires, telephone interviews and health interviews were used to get information from a sample of 5,199 persons, 18-64 years of age, on health status, risk exposures, healthcare consumption and social factors.
Non-participation with respect to the postal questionnaire was.16.8%. With subsequent telephone interviews and an invitation to a health interview, non-participation was reduced to 17.8%. The estimated prevalence of daily smoking increased from 36.1 ; to 38.7. The non-responders had a higher prevalence of daily smoking in all sub-groups.
This effect of the efforts to reduce non-participation differed socially.
