Response Rate:  View help for Response Rate The survey has a 16% contact rate and a 2.1% response rate. Results are considered accurate +/-3.0%, 19 times out of 20.   

In total, 658,547 number were called. A total of 76,106 respondents answered the phone and were potential respondents. A total of 1,073 people completed the entire survey. An estimate of 10.5% were not eligible to do the survey, either due to being too young or not living in Waterloo Region. The not eligible number was extrapolated by using the percentage of people not eligible based on responses to the first two questions. 
Sampling:  View help for Sampling The survey of Waterloo Region residents was conducted using an interactive voice response (IVR) phone survey methodology. Respondents completed the survey using their telephone keypad. The sample was randomly created using phone numbers that were originally assigned to Waterloo Region residents. Due to the ability to port numbers, respondents who moved into the region and ported a phone number were not eligible to participate in the survey. Known business phone numbers and emergency phone numbers were removed from the list of phone numbers which were called.  

This survey was approved by the Conestoga College Research Ethics Board. Sampling error, not included in the margin of error, exists due to the mismatch that is created by the random dialing of phone numbers as opposed to randomly sampling actual Waterloo Region residents.
