Methodology Content
Sampling Procedurearea-cluster sample with sex quota The sample was designed to produce a representative cross-section sample of Australian adults. Using the entire Australian electoral roll as the sampling frame, 110 dwellings were selected at random. Interviewers were then instructed to commence interviewing at the dwelling adjacent to, and at the right of, the random start (i.e. one of the 110 dwellings randomly selected) and to interview one individual there and in each adjacent dwelling, moving in a clockwise fashion around the block, until a cluster of 10 individuals was interviewed.

Title (documentation)ANZUS and Austalia's security: Australian Attitudes, May 1984
WeightingWeighting criteria The results are weighted by dividing Australia into a number of geographic areas and estimating the number of men and women, in various age groups, living in those areas. This produces about 310 'cells' containing some thousands of men and women of different age groups. The corresponding interviews in each 'cell' are then multiplied to represent the correct number of people in each cell. Weighting procedures The weight is an integer value and is included in the data file.
