Abstract

The 1999-2000 National STD and Behavioral Measurement Experiment (NSBME) randomly assigned a probability sample of U.S. adults ages 18 to 45 to have sensitive questions asked either by a human telephone interviewer (T-IAQ: telephone interviewer-administered questioning) or by Telephone Computer-Assisted Self Interviewing (T-ACASI) technology. This working paper summarizes the NSBME’s sample design and presents a comparison of the social and demographic characteristics of subjects in the two experimental conditions. This information supplements study details provided by Turner et al. (2005) and Villarroel et al. (2006). (Additional information can be found in Roman [2000] and Nyman et al. [2004].)
