Sampling Procedure

In the summer of 1991, based on the SSB population, created a data file with a list of foreign citizens entitled to vote at the municipal and county council elections in 1991. The overview is based on the voting for foreign nationals are subject to the election day has been resident in Norway for at least 3 years.

From the population of foreign nationals to vote, 81,674 people, was drawn a stratified random sample of 7500 persons, ie 9.2% of the population. Stratification was made on the basis of citizenship, and was organized with the aim of reducing the range of citizen groups with presumed high response rate and increase choice for groups with expected low response rate. These assumptions were formed on the basis of a previous survey conducted in 1987.

Because of the lack of mail addresses in the register and information from other sources, including deaths and migration out of the country, the sample was reduced from 7500 to 7294 who were sent questionnaires.
