The households that are randomly sampled for the survey will be demographically representative of the community across various demographics such as age, rent vs owning a home, household income, gender, race, and city ward.
Telephone numbers are tried at least six times during a one-week period and an additional six time the second week before another household is substituted for the original selection. Results are based upon a pre-set number of completed interviews, which for the City of Fridley is 400 completed household interviews.
