Further Remarks

NotesThe interviews were conducted by interviewers specially schooled for this task and having basic knowledge of the respective national language. To make standardization of the survey possible the complete survey documents were processed in two languages, i.e. questions and possible responses were available to the respondent in his respective national language; the interviewer noted responses in an identical copy of the questionnaire. The study is part of an omnibus survey and part of a trend survey.
